— Impact investments
Socially responsible investments that make a difference.
Yet the gross national product does not allow for the health of our children, the quality of their education, or the joy of their play. It does not include the beauty of our poetry or the strength of our marriages; the intelligence of our public debate or the integrity of our public officials…
…It measures neither our wit, nor our courage; neither our wisdom nor our learning; neither our compassion nor our devotion to our country; it measures everything, in short, except that which makes life worthwhile.
— Robert F. Kennedy
Forum observes a do-no-harm investment philosophy and actively seeks out opportunities to make a positive impact.
We actively seek opportunities to achieve not only great financial returns, but significant social ones, too. Forum works diligently with the non-profit organizations it supports to develop and accurately measure impact.
Our commitment to social responsibility is one of our defining characteristics. At the very minimum, we want each of our investments to be socially responsible, and do not pursue opportunities that do not fit this mandate.
Our ESG Policy
Forum’s ESG Policy signifies our commitment to ESG objective setting, measurement and accountability. The ESG Policy serves as a set of standards that guides Forum’s investment activities and informs our team members on how to effectively apply responsible investment criteria and ESG factors to our investment approach.
— Progressive philanthropy
Helping to build communities
Progressive philanthropy is in Forum’s DNA. Creating informed, long-lasting investments in communities ensures meaningful and sustained progress — the greatest possible return.
One example we’re particularly proud of is our partnership with WE Charity. In 2015, Forum donated $500,000 to develop water, healthcare and education infrastructure in the rural Kenyan village of Kipasan. The village is home to 1,600 residents, including 1,000+ children under 18.
In 2016, Forum led efforts to donate another $500,000, this time focusing on the village of Melelo. In 2017, we sent a team of employees to the Kenya Masai Mara region to engage with the communities, witness the progress, and contribute to community building efforts.
Charities we support
In addition to helping charities both close to home and far away, our team regularly responds to traumatic events through in-house fundraisers that are 100% matched by the firm.
