Impact Investing

Through MassMutual’s impact investments — which are part of our GIA — we focus on investing capital in companies and funds that are overlooked because of systemic barriers. In doing so, we aim to generate positive, measurable social and environmental impact, while addressing inequality in capital markets. Through the MM Catalyst Fund and First Fund Initiative, we commit impact investment capital to reduce structural inequities and advance racial equity.
