Sustainable Investing Video Series

October 13, 2020 | Linsey Schoemehl Payne, Chief Compliance Officer, Managing Partner

Our Sustainable Investing video series introduces the concepts and best practices of sustainable investing to trustees, staff, and other investors. Over the past two decades, investor interest and demand for purpose-driven investment opportunities — including various movements such as socially responsible investing, ESG integration, and impact investing — has grown significantly, and Marquette now advises on over $81 billion invested¹ with some form of sustainable approach. The three videos in this overview are presented by Linsey Schoemehl Payne, who serves as vice-chair of Marquette’s Sustainable Investing Group and works with clients directly to implement and monitor sustainable investing programs.

The series covers:

  • Tackling Terminology, an introduction to the terms and concepts investors may encounter when thinking about sustainable investing;
  • Initiating Implementation, an overview of the process of implementing a sustainable investment program; and
  • Compliance & Reporting, a summary of the various methods used to evaluate manager compliance and report on the impact of sustainable investments.
