The popularity of socially responsible investments continues to grow. Between 2018 and 2020, sustainably invested assets under management grew to $17.1T, up 42%. This accounts for nearly 1/3 of US assets under professional management. Ethic is an asset management platform that lets advisors build socially conscious investment portfolios.

The number of assets on Ethic has grown 10x since 2019 and the company now is helping wealth managers manage $760M in assets.
