INVESTING FOR A BETTER WORLD.
Perhaps you have heard of Sustainable and Responsible Investing. It is also known as Impact, Green, Ethical or Socially Responsible Investing ("SRI"), and is any investment strategy which seeks to consider both financial return and social/environmental good to bring about a positive change.
SRI is not a new idea but it is a growing one, and we think for good reason. Recent data indicates that analyzing a company's environmental, social, and corporate governance practices can help identify investments with better long-term prospects and potentially lower risk.
