Veris Wealth Partners gets top GIIRS rating


Veris Wealth Partners, an independent wealth advisors for sustainable and impact investors, has received a 5-star GIIRS rating for its commitment to social and environmental responsibility.

Veris has also been re-certified as a B Corp with a score that ranks the firm in the top 10 per cent of B Corp firms globally. Companies that are certified B Corps must meet rigorous standards for social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.

“Social and environmental responsibility have always been core values that motivate the team at Veris Wealth Partners,” says chief executive Patricia Farrar-Rivas. “Our high GIIRS rating and B Corp re-certification reflect our commitment to business principles that are positively redefining the capital markets and operating practices of companies around the world.”

Veris is an independent, partner-owned wealth management company. Veris’ 15 professionals offer strategic advice and perspective to impact investors and provide comprehensive wealth management. Veris serves individual and institutional investors interested in financial performance as much as positive social and environmental change.

GIIRS is a ratings and analytics platform for impact investing that provides comparable and verified social and environmental performance data on high impact companies and funds. GIIRS ratings range from one star to five stars.

B Corp status is also a voluntary designation conferred on companies that meet B Lab’s standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. There are more almost 700 certified B Corps in 15 countries and 60 industries. Veris was first certified as a B Corp in 2011 and exceeded its initial B Corp score in its recent recertification.
