Sustainable Investing - Interest and Impact
The old adage is that we vote with our dollars. In other words, how you choose to spend money is a reflection of our values and can shift how and what producers and companies provide. Your decision to spend money on this and not that can make an impact, especially when thousands or hundreds of thousands of other consumers make the same choices.
The same can be true of investing. More and more investors want to do well by doing well. They want their investments to be in companies and industries that they feel good about. For those clients, we can create a value-based approach with your portfolio. For these clients, it is important to them they support companies that share their worldview. We’ve been helping clients create value-based portfolios since 2006 – a time when sustainable investing and values investing was in its infancy. At that time it was challenging to find investments that did good and performed well. Now there are many more opportunities for sustainable investing.

Getting Started with Sustainable investing
The key takeaway for investors is that investing well and incorporating values around sustainability need not be mutually exclusive. By starting with a robust investment framework, then overlaying the considerations that represent the views of sustainability-minded investors, this allows for a cost-effective approach that provides investors the ability to pursue their sustainability goals without compromising on sound investment principles or accepting lower expected returns.
