Socially Responsible Investing: Doing Well While Doing Good
Many people look at the stock market as a nasty place. They picture the captains of industry doing great damage to people, places, and things. And while there are certainly those CEOs that act irresponsibly, there are many who lead organizations down socially responsible paths.
Sustainable and socially responsible investing has gained massive popularity over the past few years. The basic idea is to introduce an additional factor into portfolio construction that weights socially responsible companies more highly.
To date, there has been quite some success in using these factors to build portfolios that mirror the performance of the broader market.
What does this mean? It means that even if you don’t like a lot of things about how some businesses operate, you have options available to invest in a somewhat more responsible manner.
