Make an Impact With Your Investments
If you’re here, you believe in helping the world become a better place in whatever way you can. You might even have considered socially responsible investing (SRI) as an option.
But how do you know that your money is going to make a real difference?
This is where impact investing comes in. Where part of ESG investing seeks to avoid organizations doing harm, impact investing actively looks for opportunities to make a positive impact on society or the environment. Whether it’s investing in organizations that benefit their home communities or putting money into beneficial technological developments, impact investments aim for real solutions while helping their investors earn market returns, as well. A private wealth advisor will help you through the process. With the combination of technology and personal interaction, we give you a simple way to profit for good.
How Impactful is Your Investment?
Even though good can take many forms, when it comes to organizations and missions, there are three guidelines for measuring the kind of effect that impact investments have on the world:
The products and aims of the organization being invested in and the kind of impact they leave on the world help define the enterprise impact. This guideline involves the health and security of an organization’s employees, its community, and its environmental impact.
How far does your money go toward making an organization’s mission come to life? Does your investment and engagement make it possible? Whether the goals are general or specific, the mission might not be able to happen without you.
Nonmonetary impact includes anything that the organization can bring to the world that doesn’t necessarily involve dollar signs. Providing help to organizations that need it, helping build and grow relationships, facilitating training and other learning, and giving social enterprises the environment they need to flourish all fall under the nonmonetary banner.
There’s more to it than just a checklist, though. These organizations must set out to have a social and environmental impact—in addition to the financial returns, there must also be the intention to do good things. Transparency is very important in order to properly measure the effects of contributions, which means that the organizations you invest in will work to make sure that the causes you care about are given proper care. Good things have come about accidentally before, but imagine the possibilities when investors and organizations work together toward the betterment of the world!
