• This month in the Journal of Sustainable Finance & Banking (JSFB), our theme is “Work/Life Skills.”  While there may never be perfect balance in life, economics, or markets, we can work to integrate our approach with broader interests and beliefs. We can apply cross-disciplinary learning from life and enhance performance across the board.
  • From across the ecosystem of the Cornerstone Capital Group, we find illustrative examples of the application of life experience to apply to critical societal challenges.
  • We are also pleased to include two pieces that capture the essence of what we at Cornerstone truly consider to be among the most critical of “work/life” skills: Questioning. It is a true understanding of the difficult but pivotal questions that will drive long-term performance.
