The Ocean Foundation
21 October 2011
New York-headquartered Rockefeller Financial is partnering with The Ocean Foundation, a non-profit organization, to launch a sustainable investing initiative targeting the health of the world’s oceans. The collaboration will seek to identify profitable investment opportunities “that restore and support the health and sustainability of the world's oceans,” Rockefeller said in a statement . The Ocean Foundation will provide Rockefeller with research on marine trends, risks and opportunities, as well as thought leadership on marine conservation, which the wealth management firm will then integrate with its asset management capabilities to identify “best-in-class public companies whose businesses are involved across the broad spectrum of the ocean network globally,” it said.
