Equitable for All

At MacKay Shields, we commit to the equitable treatment of all. Differences in background, experience, characteristics, and abilities—whether readily visible or unseen—make each person unique and valuable. Attracting, developing, and retaining diverse talent is critical to our success. We promote a comprehensive approach to diversity and inclusion to serve our employees, our clients, and our community. Striving to make a positive impact and deliver results through performance with purpose is at the heart of our ethos.



Enriching Community

We are proud to align with clients and independently to support our communities through service and financial contributions. We do this throughout the year with ongoing initiatives—as well as through the annual New York Life (NYL) Insurance Giving Campaign. With matching support from New York Life Insurance Company, our pledges supported a variety of causes, including education, bereavement, and racial equality.


Since our investment decisions can have an impact on our communities and our shared environment, climate and other environmental considerations are a component of the firm’s investment practices. We aim to live sustainably. Our home office is LEED certified. We make a conscious effort to recycle, digitize, and reduce resource utilization.
