United Church Funds (UCF) recently contracted Xponance, a Black-founded and Black-majority-owned multi-strategy investment firm. With the addition of Xponance, over 60% of UCF’S domestic equities are now managed by diverse asset managers, exceeding the goal set by UCF and its Board of Directors in 2020.

As we celebrate Women’s History Month in March and International Women’s Day on March 8, Stacey Pettice, UCF’s Institutional Relationships Executive, sat down with Tina Byles Williams, founder, CEO and Chief Investment Officer of Xponance, to discuss the importance of diversity in finance management, responsible investing strategies and which women have most inspired Williams herself. You can watch the video below.
