Zevin Asset Man­age­ment, LLC is a global top-​down invest­ment man­age­ment firm whose phi­los­o­phy is rooted in the idea of avoid­ing major losses rather than seek­ing big gains. Our dis­ci­plined approach removes the emo­tion from invest­ing by iden­ti­fy­ing attrac­tive regions and sec­tors from around the world while expe­ri­enced ana­lysts con­cen­trate on stock selec­tion. For both social and invest­ment rea­sons, we focus our stock selec­tion on well-​managed com­pa­nies with sus­tain­able busi­ness practices.

Social Respon­si­bil­ity

For both social and invest­ment rea­sons, we focus on well-​managed com­pa­nies with sus­tain­able busi­ness prac­tices capa­ble of deliv­er­ing worth­while returns for a num­ber of years. The secu­ri­ties that we man­age are screened for a wide range of social cri­te­ria and are voted in a con­sci­en­tious way. Our share­holder activism includes ini­ti­at­ing com­pany dia­logues and co-​filing share­holder res­o­lu­tions on behalf of our clients. . . . MORE
