The Future of Responsible Investing
You may have heard about responsible investing, but what is it? Responsible investing
takes into account the impact investments have on the planet and those who live on
it. This means that responsible investments don’t invest in things like gambling,
tobacco, environmental damage, weaponry, slave or child labour. Responsible
investment seeks out companies who meet the ‘usual’ investment requirements but
also do not involve themselves in activities that you might like to avoid.
Did you know that if you haven’t gone out of your way to avoid this in your
investments or superannuation, chances are your money will be invested in companies
that are involved in these activities?
Responsible investing is a fast-growing area of
finance in Australia and around the world. In our education session we are going to
look at responsible investing, hear from a fund manager who runs a responsible
investment fund, and then, I will take you through some ways you can apply this
strategy to your situation.
We hope you can join us to learn about what responsible investing can mean to you.
