Veris Named “Best for the World” By B Corp
Veris Is the Only Wealth Manager to Earn This Distinction
SAN FRANCISCO, April 17, 2013 – Veris Wealth Partners, LLC, one of the nation’s leading independent wealth advisers for sustainable and impact investors, announced today it was named to B Corp’s list of companies voted “Best for the World.”
Veris, which serves individual investors and foundations, was selected because the firm ranks among the top 10% of B Corps in the world. B Corp status is a voluntary designation conferred on companies that meet B Lab’s standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency. There are currently 728 certified B Corps in 26 countries across 60 industries.
“This honor from B Corp reflects the alignment of our investment philosophy with our day-to-day operations,” said CEO Patricia Farrar-Rivas. “Veris is proud to be the only wealth adviser to earn the distinction of ‘Best For The World’ by B Corp.”
In January, Veris received a five-star GIIRS rating for its commitment to social and environmental responsibility. GIIRS is a ratings and analytics platform for impact investing that provides comparable and verified social and environmental performance data on high-impact companies and funds. GIIRS ratings range from one star to five stars.
“Veris believes in leading by example,” Farrar-Rivas said. “The recognition from B Corp and our five-star rating from GIIRS demonstrate our commitment to changing the world each day through intentional action and investing for positive social and environmental impact.”
