What is Socially Responsible or Ethical Investing?
Integrating personal values and societal concerns with investment decisions is called Socially Responsible Investing (SRI). SRI considers both the investor's financial needs and an investment's impact on society. With SRI, you can put your money to work to build a better tomorrow while earning competitive returns today.
A growing number of people are investing their money in the future. Not just their own future, their retirement or dream house, but in the future of their community, their environment, their world.
Every investor however is not concerned with the same issues. Some are worried by environmental problems, some feel strongly about how companies treat their employees, while others worry about the effects of certain products, such as tobacco, weapons or alcohol. There are as many angles to socially responsible investing as there are investors, but it is a fact that it is one of the most optimistic emerging trends in the financial world.
What surprises many investors is, that you can do well, while doing good. Most investors assume that there is a financial cost to combining societal and financial goals. The outstanding performance of SRI however supports the notion that investing with your values does not necessarily compromise your financial gains.
