Socially Responsible Investing (SRI)SRI is an investment strategy seeking to maximize both financial return and social good. AIO Financial has extensive experience in SRI, also known as environmental, social, governance (ESG); socially conscious; sustainable; ethical and impact investing. You can use ESG factors in your investment decisions without sacrificing return on your investments. Core IssuesStrategies
There are a wide range of issues that socially responsible investors can address
climate change (fossil fuel free investing)
labor practices (supply chain labor conditions)
corporate political contributions
avoiding weapon manufacturers
You can participate with all or a portion of your portfolio and help make a genuine impact. This does not mean sacrificing financial returns. Investors can do as well with social investments as they can with conventional investments. Many academic studies have shown that using ESG factors in investment decisions can improve returns.
There are many SRI investment options to meet your goals. Our clients invest in SRI mutual funds, SRI exchange traded funds, separately managed accounts and individual stocks.
There are three primary strategies utilized by SRI
using positive and negative filters to select investments
using the rights of a shareholder (through SRI mutual funds or individual stocks) to influence the direction of business
providing access to credit, equity, capital, and basic banking products for low-income communities
