Social Justice Statement
We believe that a stable and secure financial future should be accessible to everyone.
We believe that systemic oppression has kept many Black, Indigenous, Hispanic/Latina(o), Asian and other marginalized populations from achieving financial stability and security.
We believe diversity in the finance and investment industry should be more reflective of our society.
We commit to continuing to listen and learn and advocate for meeting the needs of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and people of color) communities and other marginalized people—and to help create an equitable financial system, as we believe a brighter financial future should be accessible to everyone.
