Rally-Certified Advisory Partner

New Partnership Aims to Better Serve the Impact Sector in Canada

Toronto/Montréal – January 29, 2024 – Today, Rally Assets and Millani Inc. announce a partnership that enables the two companies to increase support to Canada’s impact sector.

With this partnership, Rally Assets will focus all its efforts on its growing group of asset management clients and will no longer provide stand-alone advisory services; while Millani, as a Rally-Certified Advisory Partner, will further expand on its long-standing ESG and sustainable finance expertise and add depth to its current impact advisory services.

“Canada’s impact investment sector is much bigger and more sophisticated than it was when we started in 2010, and interest in it just keeps on growing. We want to support sector growth but recognize there is a limit to what we can do on our own; we need partners” says Kelly Gauthier, President of Rally Assets. “We’re so pleased to partner with Millani, a company that shares our values and, like us, is committed to bringing impact services to Canadian investors and companies.”

Millani will continue to work closely with Rally to integrate its impact methodology, tools and knowledge-base into its own impact services. This process allows Millani to continue to deliver industry-leading advisory work to its clients, complementing ESG integration efforts with impact strategies, policies, governance and operational structures.

“We’re very excited to combine our fifteen-year track record in ESG and capital markets with the deep impact expertise of Rally Assets,” says Milla Craig, CEO of Millani. “This is the next step in the evolution of responsible investment and will allow our clients to remain at the forefront of the market. Competitive returns and measurable social and environmental impact of investors and corporations can now go ‘hand in hand’—all that our clients need is the expertise to bring them together.”
