Our hope is that all investors will consider their roles in facing the challenges ahead. At ETF@JFFLabs, we seek to rise now to fulfill our responsibility.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, ETF@JFFLabs, the impact investment fund of JFF, announced in a post on LinkedIn that we have deferred all interest payments currently due from our portfolio companies and will continue to work with each company to assess and support their needs.
In the post, we at ETF@JFFLabs share that, in this moment, we are reminded of three things:
- We are all in this together.
- But low-income communities, as always, will be hardest hit.
- We are responsible to and for each other, and we can all do more.
We act now to offer our entrepreneurs the flexibility and confidence to do what’s best for their workers, customers, and communities. We encourage other like-minded investors to act as well.
