Arjuna Capital works with high net-worth individuals, families and foundations to create a suite of sustainable investments that makes sense to and for the client. At the heart of these relationships is an ongoing, in-depth conversation about the ways clients want their money put to work. That conversation must be clear, candid, and—contrary to common practice—conducted in plain English.
Arjuna Capital’s three managing partners together share an unparalleled depth and breadth of experience in sustainable, impact investing. With five decades of sustainable investing experience, our team understands that ideals without expertise can be hazardous to your financial health.

Arjuna is the hero of the ancient Indian epic poem, the Mahabharata. In one section of the poem known as the Bhagavad Gita, Arjuna, a famed warrior, asks Krishna to help him determine the path of right action in a morally complex world. Arjuna is portrayed as a revered leader, skilled archer and a champion of enlightened engagement in society.
Our clients seek to invest in ways that further both their own financial wellbeing and the health of society. The epic figure Arjuna embodies both this more encompassing, enlightened vision and the skill to put it into effective action.
