In recognition of Black History Month, we would like to honor Adasina Social Capital Founder and CEO Rachel Robasciotti as a leading voice in racial and social justice investing.  Rachel stands among a group of accomplished women shaping capital markets as a female manager and minority firm owner.

“Social Justice movements are often early indicators of risk in public markets”
~ Rachael Robasciotti [1]

Rachel has built Adasina Social Capital to create large-scale, systemic change in four interlocking areas, using community sourced research and impact goals.  By partnering with social justice organizations within communities identified as most impacted by racial, gender, economic, and climate injustice, Rachel and her team have developed the Adasina Social Justice Investment Criteria, a data-driven set of standards that guide their investment strategies to reflect social justice values and advance progressive movements for change. [1]

Beyond their signature social investment criteria, Adasina mobilizes investors to drive long-term impact through campaigns and education, ensuring that values-aligned investors are working in solidarity with one another and, more importantly, with impacted communities.  By combining financial experience with community-based wisdom, Adasina serves as a dynamic resource for financial and social justice activists to learn, spread awareness of, and take actionable steps towards building a more regenerative world.

For clients seeking a bridge between financial markets and social justice movements, the Adasina U.S. Large Cap SMA is now available exclusively through Gitterman Asset Management.  We are committed at Gitterman to moving the needle up from 1.4% of assets owned by women and minority led firms within the $82 trillion US asset management industry.2

Thank you, Rachel for opening the way towards large-scale, systemic change and bringing a much-needed voice to the public markets.
