Welcome to Newground
What sets Newground apart?
Listen to the NPR-KUOW feature on Newground:
"Getting McDonald's to the Table"
A sophisticated ESG* approach which includes shareholder engagement.
Nationally recognized for responsible impact investing, Newground appreciates and supports a client’s values – through (a) ESG portfolio management, (b) community investment, and (c) critically important shareholder engagements.
(a) ESG Portfolio Management seeks companies with responsible environmental, social, and governance practices, while avoiding companies whose questionable practices create material portfolio risk.
(b) Community Investment changes lives on the ground by providing necessary capital and banking services to people and communities who are routinely underserved, if not excluded.
(c) Shareholder Engagement, which few advisors undertake or even understand, uses active share ownership to call on companies to embrace sustainability, transparency, equity, and inclusion – actions which can transform corporate behavior over time.
* ESG = Environmental, Social & Governance strategies
To harness the power of business for good – in service to our clients’ long-term financial needs as well as to the human yearning for strong and resilient communities, a healthy environment, and a robust, sustainable, and locally-determined economy.
