Our Advisors

footprintsAt Natural Investments, we believe that it’s a natural human quality to care about the environment, communities, and social equity. Investing “naturally” is our way of helping people balance their need for financial return with their yearning to make the world a better place. We serve clients large and small with customized portfolios that fulfill each client’s financial, social, and environmental aspirations.

We offer something unique: a small company with a nationwide, collaborative network of nine independent offices. Each member of our team brings his or her own particular passion and specialties to project and portfolio development. The fruits of this synergistic approach benefit every client.

Key strategic relationships with Charles Schwab & Co., US SIF: The Forum for Sustainable & Responsible Investment, and Morningstar Investment Research, among others, provide us access to strong research, a valuable exchange of information with our peers in the industry, a full spectrum of investment options, and state-of-the-art performance reporting. At the same time, we offer the personal attention and individualized service larger firms seldom provide.
