Portfolio Management Tool for Social Investors

Lodestar, along with the Skoll, Kellogg, and Rockefeller Foundations and, provided seed money to Acumen Fund to develop the PULSE platform (now integrated into B Analytics), a portfolio management tool for the sector that allows individual social investors to track performance against targets on financial, operational, social and environmental metrics. The platform features both quantitative performance management and qualitative reporting. Beyond providing a more effective means of tracking performance data, PULSE has helped small and growing businesses (“SGBs”) manage their business by identifying inefficiencies and reallocating resources to maximize impact.
