About Us

Our Philosophy

Our Approach

We discover value in the world's people.

Two Sigma Impact combines 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.

We 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 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.

Two Sigma’s data science expertise and technology meets private markets investing.

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.
