Total Portfolio Activation Tools for Racial Equity Investing

To grow opportunities in black and brown communities, significant long-term investments are necessary. In November 2020, the REEFS project team began conducting a comprehensive analysis to develop the REEFS TPA Toolkit that identifies relevant investment impact and activation opportunities integrating racial equity as an explicit criterion across asset classes.

This paper offers a synopsis of the evolution from community development and ESG investing to the emergence of investing explicitly with a racial equity lens, proposes a definition for racial equity investing, and presents emerging opportunities across asset classes for investors.
