Sustainable Investing

Be a Catalyst for Change

We believe you should have the freedom to invest in companies that align with your values – ones that address our global challenges and push for progress, growth, and development. 

This opportunity allows you to diversify your portfolio with sustainable investments, backed by the stability and foundation of our rigorous research and evidence-based approach. 

Be a part of a worldwide movement, a catalytic shift in the way we invest our money, and find peace of mind knowing that you have a seat at the table when it comes to our world’s climate and environmental challenges.

What It Is

  • One of the easiest things you can do to make the world a better place.
  • An increasingly competitive investment in terms of returns and pricing.
  • A way to empower companies that are overall better positioned to face the future.

What It Isn’t

  • A political choice or stance.
  • An increased risk beyond that of a typical diversified portfolio.
  • A new concept in the investment landscape.

*Estimated reduction in CO2 of a Willow Creek 100% stock portfolio invested in our sustainable investment model as compared to the MSCI All Country World Index (ACWI). This value is estimated using the website Due to market movement, rebalancing, underlying fund composition changes, etc., the actual impact of this portfolio will vary over time. This value should be used for basic illustration purposes only and is merely a rough approximation as it is impossible to estimate the impact with a high degree of accuracy given currently available reporting.

**Emissions reduction and sequestration estimates are derived from the US Environmental Protection Agency Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator using the estimated reduction in CO2 noted above. As with the CO2 estimate, these numbers should be used merely as a rough approximation for illustration purposes and should not be taken as direct measurements or estimates with a high degree of accuracy.
