Socially Responsible Investing
Of special interest to us is the area of socially responsible investing, or ESG investing (which stands for environmental, social and governance factors), and we stay on top of developments in this area so that we can provide our clients with a number of impactful investment options. An approach that was once exclusionary in nature has become inclusionary, as a growing number of investors direct their dollars to companies demonstrating corporate responsibility related to equity, diversity, and other areas of best practice. It is advocacy that affects positive change – without foregoing the goal of achieving positive returns. And supporting and rewarding socially responsible business doesn’t just feel good, it does good: research shows that when companies act responsibly, everyone benefits – shareholders, employees, customers, communities, and the environment.
