The Global Echo ETF is the culmination of three years of work aiming to leverage financial markets and Wall Street to contribute to the greater good.  What started as a casual conversation with a friend lamenting the state of the economy and the difficulty in raising money for important causes became a journey to discovery a new approach to investing and philanthropic giving.  The culmination of that journey is a partnership with AdvisorShares Investments to develop the AdvisorShares Global Echo ETF (NYSE: GIVE), which will bring the first multi-manager ETF with an absolute return and sustainable investment mandate to advisors and their clients.
