Cartica is a concentrated, “active owner” in small and mid-cap companies in the emerging markets. Founded by a team of emerging markets and corporate governance experts that includes former executives of the International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group, the firm actively engages with management teams, boards, and shareholders to drive long-term, value enhancing improvements in corporate governance, environmental and social factors.
Headquartered in Washington, DC, the firm is majority women-owned and a registered investment adviser with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
Cartica promotes sustainability within our operations, and we work to shrink our own carbon footprint by reducing our use of energy, water, and materials, which also leads to less waste production. For more information on our approach, please see the Cartica Sustainability Policy.
“At Cartica, we think it’s important to “walk the walk” and to implement the same sustainable practices that we encourage our portfolio companies. Our partnership with Carbonfund helps us to evaluate our carbon footprint and to offset our emissions.” – Kate Ahern, Managing Director, ESG and Sustainability
