About Us

We discover value in the world's people.

Two Sigma Impact will combine active, principled ownership and data science with the goal of achieving superior returns and positive social outcomes.

We are focused on workforce impact – where we anticipate innovative and thoughtful investments in humans will lead to an enhanced employee experience, productivity and long-term financial returns.

Our Philosophy

We will apply the scientific method to impact investing.

Technology and automation are incredibly powerful tools that play a key role in the future of work, but as capital continues to be invested in technology-and data-driven businesses, relatively less investment is being made in building companies that depend more heavily on human capital. That’s where we see opportunity.

For almost two decades, Two Sigma has applied technology, data science, and human invention to solve difficult problems across financial services. We will apply those resources, along with a rigorous, scientific mindset, to maximize leadership teams’ ability to achieve better business outcomes and create meaningful work for more people.

Our Approach

We are experienced private equity investors who have partnered alongside management teams to build successful businesses across industries, geographies and market cycles.

We are bringing Two Sigma’s world-class data science expertise and technology resources to private markets investing.

We are creating a workforce impact framework focused on developing thoughtful human capital management tools to unlock human potential and create the best workplaces for employees.

Investment Focus

We will invest in companies that invest in their people.

We target equity investments between $50 million and $100 million per investment. We will consider both minority and control investments in a variety of structures.

Our four industry verticals represent ~50 percent of the U.S. economy and are expected to create over ~5 million jobs by 20281.

“Good jobs aren’t just good for society–they’re good business.”

We believe an engaged workforce is the key to building great companies. But to create good jobs instead of cutting them, you first need a definition of a good job–which is surprisingly hard to find.

Warren Valdmanis explored this question, and others, from the TED stage.  Read about his experience and watch his talk, ‘What makes a job “good”–and the case for investing in people’ over on our Insights page.
