Winning the prestigious Moskowitz Prize—the only global award that recognizes outstanding quantitative research in socially responsible investing (SRI)—is no small feat. Since 1996, when US SIF helped to launch the annual prize, winners have explored topics like shareholder activism, socially responsible mutual funds and whether social responsibility in investing is a catalyst to financial performance.
