At our core, we are investors who view Socially Responsible Investing as foundational to the investment process. We do not invest in companies who operate in harmful industries such as Weapons, Fossil Fuels, Gambling, Tobacco, Alcohol, Cannabis, and Predatory Lending. This is our “do no harm” approach, which is encapsulated in our all our funds, including the ACS Responsible Beta Funds.
We recognize that Socially Responsible Investing can have many facets. Beyond “do no harm”, we believe there are opportunities to actively look for companies that are making the planet and society better, and invest in ones which have compelling long-term potential. This is our Identify Emerging Themes approach and we offer this strategy in the ACS Sustainable Future Fund.
We are believers that there is room for both passive and active investing, and investors are often better off using some combination of both approaches. We work with corporate, institutional, family offices and other accredited investors to build both active and passive Socially Responsible Investing mandates.
We are registered with the Ontario Securities Commission as a Portfolio Manager, Investment Fund Manager, and Exempt Market Dealer.
