Boston, MA // March 13, 2018 – Elizabeth Levy, Senior Vice President, Portfolio Manager, and Research Analyst at Trillium Asset Management, recently appeared on Matter of Fact with Soledad O’Brien to discuss the recent call to action from investors to divest from firearms and weapons-related companies in the wake of the Parkland, Florida school shooting.
“We see divestment as one of the tools where we need to bring pressure as consumers…it’s just another tool that we can use to keep all of the pressure on these companies”, said Liz in response to using divestment as a strategy. As sustainable and responsible investors, Trillium avoids investing in companies that derive greater than or equal to 5% of sales from firearms.
