Happy New Year! I hope that the holiday season was joyful and found you and yours in good health and good spirits.

ESG Investing is Growing - And Women Are the Reason Why

How Women Are Changing Investing for the Better

ESG Investing is Growing - And Women Are the Reason Why

The financial industry has long been dominated by men, but as more women enter the playing field, the very nature of investing is showing a marked shift. Over the past several years, interest in Environmental Social Governance (ESG) investing, also known as impact investing, has skyrocketed - and it’s largely due to women. When it comes to ESG, individuals invest in a business that is providing a benefit of some kind. For some companies, that could be combating climate change, addressing racial inequities, or improving access to education, among others.

According to an article from Bloomberg, ESG assets could reach $53 trillion by 2025. That would mean more than 33 percent of all global assets under management would be considered ESG assets. Women are sending a clear message with their investment choices. Building wealth is no longer the only goal; female investors also want to make an impact on the world around them.

When it comes to ESG, women are undeniably present in every aspect. They are running socially responsible businesses, investing in funds that reflect their values, and lending money to support causes in which they believe. Below, we’ll discuss four ways female investors are leading the ESG movement.

Greetings! Here at the start of October and the autumn season, I am grateful for the warmth of changing leaves on the trees and that cozy feeling you start to get at this time of year before the hustle and bustle of the holidays is upon us.

In this quarter’s article, Joey Fenwick outlines a few of the changes that we have clarity on and how they may impact your tax planning for this year.

Portfolio with a Purpose: The Benefits of ESG Investing

There’s a growing trend among those who are interested in making a positive impact on their portfolio – and the environment and society around them. To accomplish these dual goals, which were often considered to be at odds with each other in the past, many savvy investors are actively seeking Socially Responsible Investments (SRI) and Environmental, Social and Governance Criteria (ESG) investments when making investment decisions.

Over the past two decades, more individuals have been pursuing opportunities for socially responsible or mission-related investing, which was previously only available to large institutions. As concerns surrounding the environment, sustainability, and data privacy have grown, so has an interest in ESG investing.

Aligning your values and financial goals allows you to make investment gains and, because you are simultaneously supporting causes that are close to your heart, you’ll feel good about those investments in more ways than one. Below, we’ll discuss how you can build a portfolio with a purpose.
