Capital is multi-faceted
We seek to recognize and discover contributions to the capital landscape beyond those that appear on balance sheets and income statements. Human capital (knowledge, skills) and social capital (friendships, networks, faith communities) are essential components of flourishing. All of us benefit from shared natural capital (resources) that require our good stewardship. Additionally, cultural capital (art, music festivals, food) and institutional capital (access to healthcare, education, transportation) surround us everywhere.
When investors acknowledge these multi-faceted and indirect forms of wealth, the analysis of portfolios broadens well beyond the typically accepted metrics of the financial industry.
