Investing with impact - a realistic solution.

Investing with impact - a realistic solution.

Once the realm of idealists and environmentalists, Impact Investing is not only becoming mainstream, but many academics and investment managers are beginning to realize that a portfolio of carefully-constructed holdings that meet "best practice" criteria in terms of governance, culture, and social responsibility can provide an opportunity for enhanced long-term performance.

If you have certain preferences regarding what types of investments you'd like in your portfolio, there's no reason you should have to "hold your nose" and invest in something that's not representative of your values. 

We take the complexity out of ESG Investing.

You know what you stand for. You may be concerned about climate change, pollution, tobacco usage, or corporate cultures and equality. Everyone has their personal list of preferences and things they would rather not be associated with. Understanding this is pretty simple. The tough part is actually incorporating your values into your investments. The average investor does not have access to the tools and research required to really do this right. Values investors are faced with three major challenges:

Investment Prison

Most ESG mutual funds and ETF's resemble an "investment prison." That is, virtually every money manager in the world wants to have a lineup of "socially responsible" funds to appeal to investors. Unfortunately, very few of these offerings are acceptable to all investors. In other words, ESG is not a "one size fits all" method. Careful evaluation and review of fund holdings, or creating your own custom portfolio are what is required to truly make this work.

A large global universe

Most investors simply don't know where to begin. There are many variables to consider, and many different ways of evaluating these variables. It's difficult to get good, objective information on investment choices, whether it's for stocks, bonds, or funds. You need an efficient way to screen for your personal preferences.

Formalizing your preferences

How do you go about developing your personal preferences? You need a roadmap to formalize your values and to implement this into your overall financial strategy. It's not an easy task, but we've simplified it for you.

We've put a lot of thought into these challenges, and have crafted some great solutions for our ESG clientele. From preference evaluation, to screening, to implementation, we've got you covered.
