Richard Kicks Off the Lake County Partner's "Big Event"

Mesirow Financial was proud to both sponsor and present at the annual Lake County Partners’ Big Event on Friday, May 17. The Big Event is Lake County’s single largest gathering of business and civic leaders focused on building on the innovation and growth of the last 20 years to fuel continued success. More than 560 Lake County business leaders – both from the private and public sectors – attended the event, the highest attendance in the event’s history.

Richard Korengold, Chairman of the Board of Governors for the Lake County Partners, kicked off the event and introduced Melissa Bean, President and CEO for Mesirow Wealth Advisors, who provided an Economic Outlook highlighting important economic trends to monitor when making long-term investment decisions.





Impact Management

For years, we have been intrigued, but disappointed, in socially conscious investing.

We believe the problem stems from the methodology, which begins with conventional investment management and then overlays several negative screens on the portfolio to eliminate companies that “do bad things.” We decided to approach investing from an affirmative approach.

We seek to invest and partner with companies that we can be proud of; companies that share the core principles that Norman Mesirow founded his business on over 80 years ago:

  1. Be good to your employees
  2. Treat your customers how you want to be treated
  3. Give back to your community

By investing in companies whose culture meets all three of these principles we expect to earn a substantial return while making the world a better place.
