Every investment has an impact
It’s the norm to focus on one thing when investing: financial return. Often, little or no thought is given to the repercussions our investment might have, but what if it were possible to generate a competitive financial return, all while improving the health of our planet and the wellbeing of the global community? Would you make the switch?
Sustainable Investing has previously been a niche market, but that perception is changing as 2019 has seen the market grow, being valued at $23 trillion globally. Sustainable investments are no longer only for eco-warriors, bringing new tools and transparency, offering professional investors the opportunity to build strong portfolios and generate a better and greener return.
