Plant growing inside a light bulb to promote socially responsible investing

Socially Responsible Investing

You can align your investment goals with your personal values. 

Socially Responsible Investing means that you can invest in companies with a socially responsible mindset. These companies typically treat their stakeholders well. They treat the environment well. They treat their people, suppliers, and communities that they work in well. And they’re governed well- with a diverse board, and fair executive compensation. These leadership tactics fall under Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) characteristics. And when a company is managed well under these ESG characteristics, they are avoiding the negative traits that cause volatility and disruption, which allows the company to focus on driving profits and ultimately deliver a good stock price or dividends.    

Which means you can align your investment portfolios with your own values and goals for a better world.
