1) Gender Lens Investing Overview WHO WE ARE Founded in 1998, Community Capital Management (CCM) specializes in managing fixed income Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG)/impact investing portfolios. To date, CCM has $2 billion in assets and has invested over $6.7 billion in ESG/impact initiatives nationwide on behalf of its clients. CCM’S GENDER LENS INVESTING OVERVIEW Appropriate for: institutional and high net worth investors focused on improving the lives of women and girls CCM has been buying bonds that finance community development initiatives since 1999. This approach is proactive, positive and does not employ any negative screening. Community development initiatives include: • • • • Affordable Housing Enterprise Development Redevelopment of Blighted Communities Environmental Sustainability • • • • Affordable Healthcare Education/Child Welfare Healthy Communities Disaster Recovery Many of our investments in the categories mentioned above benefit women and girls. CCM’s positive fixed income impact investing strategy provides investors an opportunity to target specific impact themes such as gender lens investing and help women and girls better their lives. “Gender lens investing is an approach to encouraging improved gender-based outcomes by increasing access to finance and resources for institutions/industries that are/tend to be (1) womenowned and managed, (2) implementing organizational policies and practices that advance gender equality, and/or (3) provide products or services specifically tailored to the needs and impact on women and girls as a consumer segment. The field of gender lens investing believes in the power of investments to generate large-scale social and financial returns when gender analysis is integrated into financial analysis and decisionmaking.” -United States Agency International Development (USAID) CCM’S ADVANTAGE CCM actively manages bond portfolios that seek to provide investors with aboveaverage, risk-adjusted returns while financing community development initiatives. A benefit is the ability for investors to customize their bond portfolio to positively align with their social areas(s) of focus or geographies. We believe our approach provides an added layer of investment transparency by detailing the use of bond proceeds and providing comprehensive reports on the community initiatives being financed. Many of our community investments have multiple components and benefits such as affordable housing, job creation, childcare, and neighborhood revitalization. GETTING STARTED CCM manages bond portfolios within two investment vehicles: separately managed accounts (minimum: $10 million) and a mutual fund (minimums vary per share class). For investments over $500,000 in the institutional share class of the mutual fund and for all separate accounts, quarterly impact reports are provided detailing, dollar for dollar, the community development initiative and benefit for each investment earmarked.
