The nature of progress is that it never stops.
We hold ourselves to that same standard.

Commitment to DEI

Breaking through starts with breaking down barriers

We believe homogeneity has never led to the next big idea. Changemakers come from all walks of life and backgrounds, and VMG believes diversity of thought is essential to progress. We nurture an ecosystem that connects changemakers from diverse experiences, industries, and backgrounds to unlock greater potential. Breaking through starts with breaking down barriers.

Improving Diversity, Equity & Inclusion within our own team and our industry is a work in progress, but one that we are committed to in our actions and investment approach.

Investing Internship Program

The mission of VMG’s Investing Internship Program is to create early access to careers in the finance industry for historically marginalized communities. Every year, we recruit a select number of rising juniors and provide them with a summer internship that will jumpstart their understanding of investing principles, and support their career aspirations.

Committed to companies setting the bar

VMG has aspired to operate with responsible investing principles in mind since our founding, with numerous investments in better-for-you brands and the technologies that power them. Many of our portfolio companies are setting the industry standard for customer welfare, safety, quality, and sustainability, and we are proud of their accomplishments in this space.

Annual Responsible Investment Report

While VMG seeks to integrate certain environmental, safety and governance factors into its investment process and firm operations, there is no guarantee that VMG’s strategy will be successfully implemented or that any investments or operations will have a positive impact. Applying responsible investment principles involves qualitative and subjective decisions and there is no guarantee the criteria used by VMG to formulate investment decisions, or VMG’s judgment regarding the same, will be reflected in the beliefs or values of any particular client or investor. There are significant differences in interpretation of what constitutes positive impact and those interpretations are rapidly changing. The description of responsible investment principles herein is provided to illustrate VMG’s intended approach to investing and firm operations; however, there is no guarantee that the processes will be followed in every circumstance or at all.
