Inatai Investment Management Co.

Investment decisions are never neutral.

Successful investing is about more than making money. It’s about making a difference. That’s why Inatai prioritizes people over profits, using a cost-sharing model to compound the capital, power, and influence of Group Health Foundation and our partners advancing racial justice and equity.

A typical investment management company works for their clients based on a fee schedule. We offer investment management services at cost. Opting out of a profit-driven model means we’re free to choose investment options that make sense for our partners, not our bottom line.

We’re proud of the diverse expertise and experience our leadership team brings to the table. Collectively, we define Inatai’s philosophy, strategy, and approach, and our small group of investment managers take action. Equity through investment is our North Star.

Market investments are never neutral. We consider both the earning potential and the values-alignment of every investment we make. Our partners can rest easy knowing their investments are sustainable for the long term and support, rather than undermine, their values.

Inatai team

We are a team of professional investors motivated to use our skills and expertise to build and manage capital for organizations advancing racial justice and equity.

We’re fighting for partners’ missions, not their fees.
