While most people would agree that “leaving the world a better place than we found it” is a worthy goal, many find that it’s not the easiest task to accomplish. Aside from adhering to the “reduce, reuse, recycle” mantra, are there ways your money can help achieve this goal?
Enter, Sustainability & Impact Investments. These are investments that generate both financial returns and social or environmental benefits. Sustainable Investing is undergoing a transition: once upon a time, it was a niche market for well-capitalized financiers. Today, it is a growing component of portfolios on Main Street, with organizations such as the World Economic Forum and Aspen Institute exploring ways to get involved.
Sustainable Investing has seen dramatic growth in assets and demand for investment vehicles. However, given the confusing overlap of terminology and the relative lack of tenure (compared to more traditional asset classes), there is an even greater need for investors to understand the various options. This in-depth white paper can give you more insight into the different considerations.
We believe in supporting strategies that create paths toward a healthier planet and ways we can play a more active role in shaping our future. There’s no better time than now to understand and take responsibility for the implications of our actions as global citizens.
