Making an Impact with your Investments

What if you could control how your investment dollars are directed and support the values you cherish, be they respect for the environment, promoting diversity in the workplace, or improving the lives of others?

You can—through impact investing. Impact investing (also known as socially responsible investing or Environmental, Social and Governance investing) lets you align your investments with the causes and values that matter most to you.

The vast majority of Americans want to create a better world for future generations. Impact investing puts you in the driver’s seat to help make that happen. How? You can disinvest from companies that are the source of a societal problem or invest in other companies that champion sustainable energy and other initiatives that improve life for people throughout the world.

Impact investing pairs the rigor of investing with the heart of philanthropy. According to the Forum for Sustainable and Responsible Investment, you don’t have to sacrifice portfolio returns when you align your investment strategy with your core values.



Socially responsible investing involves the exclusion of certain securities for nonfinancial reasons. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve certain risks and uncertainties, which are difficult to predict.  There is no guarantee that any investing goal will be met.
