An Impact Fund that Checks all the Boxes

Before founding Adasina Social Capital, Rachel Robasciotti had already built a successful values-driven wealth management firm. So, she knew from experience what clients mean when they say, “I want to make a difference with my money.” Not only were her diverse group of clients interested in making investments having a positive impact, but they also wanted a management team that represented them. Rachel and her team really wanted to fulfill their clients’ desire for impact but weren’t happy with the ETF or mutual fund options available. So, they decided to create a fund that would check all the boxes.

Thus, JSTC was born! Created and managed by a Black woman-owned asset management firm with a diverse staff, this ETF offers advisors a diversified, cost-effective public equities portfolio that aligns with their client’s values and uses tried-and-true investing methods.

With JSTC, investors get both a socially accountable and financially competitive return potential on their investments.

JSTC is an easy-to-purchase public equities ETF that is screened for racial, gender, economic, and climate justice. In addition to excluding companies that fail social justice criteria, JSTC enables investors to contribute to large-scale systemic change through Adasina’s leading-edge approach to advocacy and engagement.
