Intentional Endowments

News from the CTIS

For your consideration from the CTIS project: Conservation Trust Funds and other institutional investors who are thinking about ways to align your portfolios with your mission, especially around climate change issues, may be interested in recent work by Cambridge Associates and the Intentional Endowments Network. Their primary audience was US-based institutional investors, but the concepts are relevant to all institutional investors considering how to incorporate environmental issues into the investment policy. Their suggested framework -- Purpose, Priorities, Principles -- can offer a discussion approach for Investment Committees and a starting point for a CTF's further exploration with its investment professionals.
