Paul Herman is a globally recognized leader in investing to pursue positive impact and profit.  HIP (Human Impact + Profit) Investor licenses 121,800 impact investment ratings of stocks, bonds, and funds to investors, investment advisors, wealth advisors, fund managers, hedge funds, fiduciaries, and retirement plans, including 401(k)s. HIP’s Ratings also help drive the Newsweek Green Rankings and the Peter Drucker Index.
