Genus Capital Management was founded in 1989, and is an independent investment management firm based in Vancouver. We are passionate about creating innovative investment solutions that meet our clients’ changing needs.
With more than $1.1 billion in assets under management, Genus’ clients include leading environmental organizations, foundations, Indigenous communities, pensions and individuals across Canada.
As the world took notice of climate change’s environmental impact, our clients, such as the David Suzuki Foundation, began to see its impending economic impact, and asked for higher standards in socially responsible investment.
In 2013 we enhanced our socially responsible strategies and created Genus Fossil Free to better align the values of our clients with their investments and help address some of the world’s pressing socioeconomic and environmental challenges.
Today, Genus Capital is at the forefront of Canada’s Divest-Invest movement with a complete suite of fossil fuel free funds that are tailored to meet the needs of investors who wish to invest in a sustainable, clean energy future.
We are proud participants and signatories of several global responsible investment initiatives, including the Carbon Disclosure Project and the United Nations’ Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).
