Socially Responsible Investing

Socially responsible investing, also known as impact or sustainable investing, has come into focus in our changing world. At the center of socially responsible investing is choosing investments that are more in alignment with your personal beliefs. We have an in-depth conversation with you to identify what is truly important to you. We can then tailor your investment portfolio to incorporate your values while still targeting growth to reach your goals.  

 

ESG: beyond going green 

 

Environmental: Protection and conservation of our world 

  • Company’s carbon footprint  
  • Efforts to reduce pollution 
  • Disposal of hazardous waste 
  • Conservation of natural resources 

Social: The social impact a company is making on our communities 

  • Company’s stance on LGBTQ+ and diversity issues  
  • Charitable efforts 
  • Labor standards, worker relations 
  • Community outreach 

Governance: Analysis of leadership and operations of a company 

  • Diversity of the board and individuals in leadership roles 
  • Stockholder rights
