Press Release – SAN FRANCISCO – Oct. 30, 2018 – Gender Lens Investing (GLI) continued to grow strongly in the 12 months ended June 30, 2018, rising 85% to a record $2.4 billion, according to analysis by Veris Wealth Partners, an impact wealth management firm.
The number of explicitly gender lens strategies holding publicly traded securities also continued to increase. In 2014, Veris identified eight investing vehicles. As of mid-year 2018, the number had more than quadrupled to 35.
“The growth of Gender Lens Investing is one of the most positive developments in a year overshadowed by the gender pay gap, lack of women on boards and sexual harassment scandals,” said Patricia Farrar-Rivas, CEO of Veris Wealth Partners. “GLI is one of the best opportunities to mobilize capital and remedy social issues we need to put behind us.”
