WHO WE ARE

We are Economists and Innovators

We developed some of the original impact investing analysis tools, with great results. We create unusually impactful, high return investment initiatives...

We pioneered the systematic use of financial and social data in the selection and evaluation of financial institutions when we created the first social and financial impact investing methodology, the Fully Adjusted Return (TM) index in 1991. We developed the first targeted MBS securitization. We helped create a refinancing plan for victims of predatory lending.

We launched this website on November 16, 1995

...and have become one of the most innovative, impactful investment & economic research firms ever..

Meet the Founder

We've enjoyed more years practicing than most like to admit.

Our experience and expertise cannot be duplicated. We are, quite simply, the best at what we do. Our experience is both broad and deep, given that we have been active in impact investing for some time:
