It takes a village. Meet your new neighbors.

Investing is serious business with very tangible real-world consequences. Whether you are a faith-based institution, a business owner who wants to do more, or a retiree looking to leave a legacy, you deserve to have a best-in-class team with the tools to deliver results. When you expand your goals to include social and environmental returns, it becomes critical that your team also has the flexibility to align your portfolio with your convictions, not the other way around. After extensive due diligence, Ethos Logos is proud to partner with the following firms that enable us to do just that:
