The impact of our investments has the power to make big changes.
Not only can thoughtful investing completely transform your financial trajectory, but it can also help you make strides toward building a future that you believe in.
With socially responsible investing, you can choose to stake and support companies with missions meaningful to you. Instead of putting your money into companies that don’t align with your values, socially responsible investing guides you to build — or diversify — your portfolio in ways that conform to your beliefs.
As the world continues to change around us, more people are becoming aware of socially responsible investment options. According to the 2018 Global Sustainable Investment Alliance Report, assets managed with sustainable investing strategies now represent 26% of all investment assets under professional management in the United States. If you are passionate about using (and potentially growing) your money to further causes and business practices that you care about, then socially responsible investing could be a great approach to incorporate into your financial strategy.
Let’s dive into the concept of socially responsible investing, including how to assess if companies are socially responsible and how you can apply it to your financial future.
