Investments in Mercy Loan Fund come from many sources, including religious institutions, banks, health care systems, corporations, foundations, the government and individuals. Since 1990, Trillium Asset Management (Trillium) has brought individual and institutional investors to Mercy Loan Fund.
“The global economic meltdown has been a stark reminder of the importance of affordable housing and essential community infrastructure projects in the U.S.” said Randy Rice, Trillium’s Community Impact Investing Manager. “Mercy Loan Fund’s mission to make quality housing available to low-income families and individuals has resonated with our clients for nearly 25 years.”
Headquartered in Boston, MA, Trillium Asset Management is the oldest independent investment advisor devoted exclusively to sustainable and responsible investing. Trillium integrates Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) factors into the investment process as a way to identify the companies best positioned to deliver strong long-term performance. This partnership has allowed individuals interested in socially responsible investing with a focus on affordable housing to support Mercy Loan Fund, helping to expand affordable housing for people with special needs and the economically poor. “We are thankful for the support of Trillium Asset Management over the past 23 years,” said Julie Gould, President of Mercy Loan Fund. “It’s a great partnership that connects investors with people in need.”
