Why Socially Responsible Investing?
You’re someone who cares a lot. You have a big heart, but maybe not the biggest nest egg. You’d like to champion causes you believe in, but you also know that you need to be responsible for your future. Investments can seem like a zero-sum game in a capitalist system—either you invest in a cause, or you invest in a portfolio.
Interest in sustainability, social responsibility, and concretely leaving a positive impact on the world is an increasing concern not only among investors, but among corporations as well. Corporations are adopting environmental and social policies to attract investors like you, and they’re performing very well. Social investing is the way to go, and we know that better than anyone.
So what is social investing? It means investing in socially responsible companies that hold business relationships in high regard, from employees to stakeholders to suppliers to the community. These are companies that give back to the community and ensure their employees are working within a healthy and safe environment. They also work with suppliers that possess these same values.
Invest in Companies That Share Your Social Values

We can tailor your portfolio to leave a positive impact on your returns as well as the community and causes you care about.

We can put your money to work for you in a way that works with your personal risk tolerance and toward those causes that you can’t fight for alone.

You might be wondering if it’s worth it. You might have read or heard something saying that SRI investing isn’t as profitable and won’t earn as much in returns. Rest assured that this is a myth: there is very little difference in risk or returns except that, with sustainable investments, you’re growing something bigger than yourself that will change the world for the better.
Gone are the days when you had to choose between investing your money to work for you and investing it in causes you believe in. Now, there’s no need for sacrifice. You can be a good neighbor and citizen of this planet we call our home.
