In this podcast and video, I interview Rob Thomas of SocialK about his firm and how they work to create employer sponsored investment plans that have many Environmental, Social, Governance screened (ESG) investment options.

Retirement funds are generally focused on long-term growth and opportunity. One approach is not only seeks profits, but also contributes to a sustainable, healthful world for the future. Social(k) offers hundreds of investments using Environmental, Social, and Governance, (ESG investments) which provide competitive returns.

SocialK provides transparent cost structures that allow you to know exactly what you are paying. They will compare their fees with other plans.

Socially Responsible Investing (SRI), or impact investing is an investment strategy which seeks both financial return and environmental, social and governance good to make a positive impact.
