Sustainable Administration Hub: Investment

Those investing Ohio University's financial resources must meet their fiduciary responsibilities to Ohio University and its public purposes.  One of the ways to meet fiduciary responsibilities is to consider Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors when making investments.

Investments with high ESG ratings typically are lower risk, higher yield, and less subject to negative public attention.  At Ohio University, two student groups (the Fixed Income Management Group and the equity Management Group) have been investing several million dollars of the University’s general fund following ESG investment guidelines for most of the past decade.
