Fengate’s mission is to deliver excellent investment results while fulfilling lives through the impact of our work, and our commitment to equity, belonging, inclusion and diversity (EBID) plays a foundational role in this mission. It is Fengate’s core belief that diverse perspectives and experiences enhance the value to our firm, our investors, our stakeholders, and the communities in which we work; therefore, it is our moral imperative to continuously grow and sustain a culture of inclusivity. It is a priority at Fengate to create, operate with, and continuously grow and sustain an inclusive culture that respects and connects the diversity of our team, our clients, our partners, and the communities we work in.
At Fengate, we believe an environment where every team member can be their authentic self is fundamental to the happiness of our people, which directly impacts the success of our business. In 2021, we launched a firmwide inclusion survey to listen and set benchmarks, and we created the Fengate EBID Think Tank to drive our ongoing strategy that fosters a diverse, inclusive, and equitable workplace. We are committed to ensuring all backgrounds and perspectives — including race, ethnicity, culture, nationality, faith, spiritual beliefs, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, and abilities — are valued, sought after, and celebrated at our firm. It is our responsibility to always be listening to and learning from each other, and consistently improving. Through this, our vision is to ensure EBID is enriching our client service, our investments, and our team, and is foundational to every aspect of business and every interaction at Fengate.
