Haas Socially Responsible Investment Fund (HSRIF)

Praised as ambitious and groundbreaking, the Haas Socially Responsible Investment Fund is the first and largest student-led SRI fund within a leading business school. It offers our MBA students real-world experience in delivering both strong financial returns and positive social impact. Since 2008, the student principals have more than doubled the initial investment to +$2M, learning through experience about SRI and ESG investment strategies and practices.

The HSRIF was launched with generous gifts from alumni and receives ongoing crowdfunding donations. View our list of founders and donors.
