Came across this article in my email box this morning
"Sustainable investing is often misunderstood. Many investors think a sustainable agenda limits a portfolio to a narrow piece of the market. In fact, plenty of stocks can help investors create social benefits while generating strong returns—if you know how to find them."
and I was reminded why I like them ESG and SRI in our client portfolio's .
ESG = Envirnomental , Social, Goverence
SRI = Socially Responsible Investments
What is Responsible Investment?
Responsible investment (RI) refers to the incorporation of environmental, social and governance factors (ESG) into the selection and management of investments.
RI has boomed in recent years as investors have recognized the opportunity for better risk-adjusted returns, while at the same time, contributing to important social and environmental issues.
