Ethic's technology platform enables advisors to create custom portfolios that align clients' values, and tax management preferences, all while seeking to minimize tracking error against the underlying benchmark. It also offers a number of supplemental features, including data-rich impact reporting and educational materials, that position advisors to lead meaningful conversations around sustainability.
