Sustainable Thematic Solutions

Many investors want to invest in companies that contribute positively to society while pursuing strong returns. Achieving these twin goals requires a coherent investment approach. Our Sustainable Thematic solutions identify environmental or social challenges presented by the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and target investment in issuers that provide products or services to tackle them. Prominent themes include climate, health and empowerment.

Municipal Impact Solutions

Impact solutions can also enable investors to channel money into securities that make measurable social or environmental impacts. Our Municipal Impact solutions seek to make a measurable impact by investing in historically marginalized and low-socioeconomic-status communities throughout the US. We’ve intentionally designed each investment to help reduce social disparity (e.g. education, health, clean water) between groups.

AB’s approach leverages a powerful combination of municipal investing expertise and ESG research capabilities.
