As LongView’s newly-hired Sustainability Associate, it gives me great pleasure to announce that LongView Asset Management was listed among The Top 50 ESG Financial Advisors in 2021 by SustainFi, a personal finance site launched last year with the purpose of “making environmental, social, and governance (ESG) and sustainable investing easy to understand'' and “connecting people who want to make an impact with their money with the right investments, products, and services.”
We are delighted by this recognition, which reflects our longstanding commitment to social and environmental responsibility.
We know our clients not only want to achieve financial growth and security for themselves, but many also seek to ensure a brighter future for their children and grandchildren through their investments.
We share this aspiration, and we have no doubt that protecting the health of the living planet is essential to the financial, physical, and spiritual wellbeing of coming generations.
That’s why Longview incorporates sustainability considerations into every aspect of our company, from our ESG investment portfolios to the way we conduct our own business. We are always looking for ways to hold ourselves and the investment industry at large to higher standards.
As part of this undertaking, in 2019, LongView became the first registered B Corporation in New Mexico in the financial sector.
We also created the financial industry’s first sustainable target date portfolios for use as a Qualified Default Investment Alternative in school retirement plans, in collaboration with investment giant TIAA (Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association of America.)
In 2021 we were certified by Green America as a small company committed to using business as a platform for social change.
LongView also donated the equivalent of 7% of our 2021 gross revenues in in-kind services and cash contributions to charitable organizations around New Mexico.
As we head into 2022, we look forward to renewing our B Corp certification, solarizing our historic Grant Avenue office building in downtown Santa Fe, and posting a financial literacy series about women and investing.
Our mission is to help our clients achieve their financial goals while aligning their investments with their values, and to support the ESG investment movement in transitioning the world to a sustainable economy.
We could not have come this far without the backing of our clients, partners, and community members, and without the daily commitment from every member of the LongView team.
We are truly thankful for your support in 2021, and wish you health and happiness in the new year.
