GH&A engages public policymakers or lawmakers on sustainable investing issues. An example of our engagement of lawmakers on sustainability issues is our recent firm letter to Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Chairwomen US House Committee on Financial Services, regarding Draft H.R. Bill, the “Diverse Asset Managers Act”. The act would “require the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, companies registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and companies registering securities with the Commission, to consider diverse individual-owned and controlled asset management firms when seeking asset management services, and for other purposes.” We felt strongly that as an MWBE firm that we needed to support other emerging managers and diversity in the asset management arena. This type of engagement helps to address the racial and gender disparities within the financial services industry and corporate governance.
