About Etho Capital LLC

Etho Capital is an active investment manager creating top-quality strategies that deliver financial performance in combination with greater Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) sustainability as well as climate efficiency.

The firm believes investment strategies that incorporate ESG sustainability in smart, skilled ways will be more competitive and produce better returns over time. It therefore developed its ESG-sustainable equity indices to prove this thesis.

Our mission (which is to develop investment strategies that simultaneously provide superior environmental, social, and financial performance) aligns closely with the values and aspirations that B Corps champion. So, it was a clear from our first day of operations that we should become a B Corp.

The Change We Seek®

Etho Capital LLC's team strives each day to provide investors with strategies that deliver superior environmental, social, and financial returns. They want to show people that investing well and benefitting the planet / society are not mutually exclusive pursuits, and therefore Etho Capital LLC seeks to make ESG-sustainable investing mainstream.
