You found us because you, like all of us at 3Sisters Sustainable Management, LLC (3Sisters) want to make a positive difference in the world with your time, your work and your money. You want to invest in companies that reduce, reuse and recycle resources instead of extracting them from the earth. You want to invest in companies that create natural solutions rather than chemical ones and that find ways to enhance the biosphere rather than degrade it. And, most importantly, you want to invest in companies that meet human needs.
While there are other firms that share our (and your) goals, values and commitment to leaving a positive legacy, what sets us apart is that we are, well, positive.
We don’t rely on just a negative screen to narrow down the universe of investment options. We are unique in that we use the Natural Step (www.naturalstep.org) decision tree as the backbone of our research process. 3Sisters Sustainable Management, LLC is a Registered Investment Advisor and fund incubator that synthesizes professional management with positive sustainable investments in all asset classes. Our unique approach begins with research and due diligence focusing on the most relevant long term solutions for our time. Each of our investment strategies can be used singly to fill out existing client portfolios or the strategies may be combined into one healthy ecosystem. With expertise in diverse asset classes, the firm serves wealth advisors, consultants, family offices, high-net worth individuals, foundations and institutional investors.
We are often asked about the origin of our name. Who are the three sisters? We get our name from a gardening metaphor which illustrates the way we work with money. The original “three sisters” were the three symbiotic plants traditionally grown together by the indigenous people of North America: corn, beans, and squash. For us the three symbiotic sisters are cash, loans and investments or gifts, all planted in the social enterprises within innovative business models that promise to yield a productive “harvest” of social, environmental and economic benefits to all stakeholders.
At 3Sisters we have developed the building blocks for a strategic ecosystem of sustainable investments that works synergistically to sustain people, our planet and healthy profits. Strategic because each investment strategy can be weighted strategically by advisors to provide appropriate growth and financial security. Ecosystem because of the diverse assortment of synergistic investments both traditional and alternative. And sustainable because the research process focuses on global and local initiatives with products and services that provide positive impact.
