You may have heard it called “green investing,” or “values-based investing,” but what do those terms mean? What is socially responsible investing? According to The Forum for Sustainable and Responsible Investment, sustainable, responsible, and impact investing (also called “SRI” or “socially responsible investing”) is “an investment discipline that considers environmental, social, and corporavernance criteria to generate long-term competitive financial returns and positive social impact.” Simply put, socially responsible investing seeks to help you grow your money while doing good.
Over the years, as investors have realized the impact they can have, socially responsible investing has increased more than 38% from 2016 to 2018. In 2018, more than one out of every four dollars under professional management in the United States – 26% of the $46.4 trillion in total assets under management – was involved in socially responsible investing*. As a result, more and more companies are understanding the need to align their policies in a more socially responsible way.
I believe the impact of your investments can be meaningful. You can make a difference.
