Socially Responsible Investing Quickly Explained
 
03:32
When investing in a company, you need to make sure they are doing the right thing and that they are profitable. Companies that do the wrong thing expose themselves to massive risks that could have a huge financial impact in the future. I've attached my notes on SRI below: Involves: Environmental pollution Public concerns (Genetically modified food) Corporate Governance. (Is chairman and CEO same person) Focus of regulatory framework. (greenhouse gas emissions Labour issues. (Safe working environment) SRI is any issue that may not have a short term impact but could have significant negative or positive impacts for asset owners in the long term. SRI has a financial impact. Its not a Moral Judgement OR an Investment Judgement. It includes both. It is the right thing to do and its in the interest of the investor Includes: Ethical business practices Transparent reporting Community support Black economic empowerment Methods: Active asset management with regards to voting in board rooms Enforcing good corporate governance Aim for investments that have a positive contribution to society Also focus on unlisted socially responsible opportunities (Educational Entrepreneurs) Approaches: Passive screening. Invest in an ESG benchmark index Positive screening. Establish a criteria before an investment is included in a portfolio Negative screening. Exclude companies on the basis of ESG performance. UN Global Compact: Human Rights International Labour Organisation (no child labour) Environmental issues No to bribery and corruption Trustees feel SRI implementation is too difficult and that it goes against their mandate of sole responsibility of maximising investment returns. Some critics say that negative screening is not consistent with Modern Portfolio Theory as it limits the investment universe thus lowering diversification, but benefits of diversification are marginal and fall rapidly. Most important issue is if negative screening causes a big deviation from benchmark, if a tobacco company like BAT is one of the biggest in the index. Others believe business should stick to doing business. Trustees must: instruct managers to take SRI into account instruct managers to engage with firms in which they invest Independent non-executive directors may not be considered independent the longer they hold their position Factors pushing ESG into the mainstream Nexus between ESG issues and financial performance Stakeholder activism Reputational concerns Consumer pressure and public opinion Pressure from research bodies Pressure from insurance industries Introduction of corporate environmental reporting obligations Rise of the global company Adoption of investment guidelines by the World Bank Growing corporate Transparency IT revolution Social Media pressure Regulation mandating disclosure of ESG investment policies Traits Discipline Transparency Independence Accountability Appropriate behaviour Fairness Social responsibility Good stakeholder relations Communication and disclosure Effective leadership Financial and economic performance Respect for shareholder’s rights Meeting stakeholder obligations Embracing challenges of their business environment

Why is Socially Responsible Investment Important?
 
01:48
Sustainable investment is an investment strategy that acknowledges the relevance of environmental, social and governance, or ESG, factors in investment decision making and its following generation of sustainable financial returns. As Laura Berry, Executive Director with the Interfaith Center for Corporate Responsibility explains, the importance of sustainable investment that considers social investment factors is fundamental to meeting fiduciary responsibilities. As an active investor, CalSTRS recognizes that environmental, social and governance, or ESG, issues affect the performance of the investment portfolio. This video examines those issues from the perspective of an active sustainable investor; it is not intended to directly reflect the views of CalSTRS.

How ESG Metrics Work And Why All Investors Should Care
 
09:04
"The Conscious Investor" is presented by Nuveen. Martin Kremenstein, head of retirement and ETF solutions at Nuveen, explains how ESG metrics serve as an indicator of quality and can be used as a risk management tool. According to research from MSCI, companies in the bottom ESG quintile have been twice as likely to suffer a catastrophic loss (over 95% cumulative loss) within three years. MSCI downgraded Equifax to the lowest ESG rating on cybersecurity concerns a year before the data breach was announced. Kremenstein says that Facebook was excluded from Nuveen's NuShares ESG Large-Cap Growth ETF from the time it launched in December 2016. He explains, "it scored relatively poorly, compared to other tech companies over data privacy concerns." -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider tells you all you need to know about business, finance, tech, science, retail, and more.

What is SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE INVESTING? What does SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE INVESTING mean? SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE INVESTING meaning - SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE INVESTING definition - SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE INVESTING explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Socially responsible investing (SRI), or social investment, also known as sustainable, socially conscious, "green" or ethical investing, is any investment strategy which seeks to consider both financial return and social good to bring about a social change. Recently, it has also become known as "sustainable investing" or "responsible investing". There is also a subset of SRI known as "impact investing", devoted to the conscious creation of social impact through ainvestment. In general, socially responsible investors encourage corporate practices that promote environmental stewardship, consumer protection, human rights, and diversity. Some avoid businesses involved in alcohol, tobacco, fast food, gambling, pornography, weapons, contraception/abortifacients/abortion, fossil fuel production, and/or the military. The areas of concern recognized by the SRI practitioners are sometimes summarized under the heading of ESG issues: environment, social justice, and corporate governance. "Socially responsible investing" is one of several related concepts and approaches that influence and, in some cases govern, how asset managers invest portfolios. The term "socially responsible investing" sometimes narrowly refers to practices that seek to avoid harm by screening companies included in an investment portfolio. However, the term is also used more broadly to include more proactive practices such as impact investing, shareholder advocacy and community investing. According to investor Amy Domini, shareholder advocacy and community investing are pillars of socially responsible investing, while doing only negative screening is inadequate.

Just Say "No" to Socially Responsible Investing
 
03:15
http://IncredibleRetirement.com 800-393-1017 I just read a report saying that socially responsible investing represents almost 25% of US based investments. Socially responsible investing is where you avoid investing your money in areas that are not in alignment with your personal beliefs and values. Maybe don't want your money invested in companies that sell tobacco products, alcohol, weapons, or maybe use animal testing in research and development. Or you might be concerned about environmental, social or religious issues. Chances are, whatever cause is important to you, there's a mutual fund designed with you in mind. New evidence from one of the world's largest sovereign wealth funds shows that socially responsible investors are losing out on significant profits in their investments. Excluding tobacco companies and weapon manufacturers reduced the returns by almost 2% per year. As you might imagine, Wall Street has also come up with investment products that target these specific companies, sometimes called sin stocks. A portfolio of so called sin stocks outperformed the S&P 500 from 1996 through October of 2016 by 3.7% per year. The bottom line is there are many forms of socially responsible investing and socially responsible investment products. I remember many years ago a software company contacted us to try and sell us their socially responsible screening program. It would screen existing mutual funds and give the fund a red, yellow or green light. I was shocked to find that a religious based mutual fund managed by a large and well known religious organization actually failed the socially responsible screening based on the algorithms of the software. Their fund got the dreaded red light. I pretty sure the religious organization would disagree with the software's findings. Because of the wide variety of socially responsible and how you define socially responsible one person to the other or from one investment product to the other, the odds are stacked against you in achieving competitive, let alone above average investment returns. My suggestion to you is to NOT limit your investment selection to so called socially responsible investments. Instead invest focusing on total return. Then take some of your profits that you will probably get by avoiding socially responsible investing and use those profits to donate to the causes that are important to you. Chances are you will make a bigger financial impact on the charities and causes that are important to you!

The Personal Capital Socially Responsible Personal Strategy® is a turnkey solution that systematically screens companies based on their actions in three key areas: Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG). While many companies tout their SRI offerings, we are unique in that: 1. Rather than focusing on excluding companies, we instead shift the focus to companies that are performing the best within the realm of ESG. 2. We adhere to a sector diversification strategy, which reduces volatility and risk; many other players usually have one or a few funds. 3. For the majority of our U.S. equity exposure, we build these portfolios with individual stocks. This gives our clients advantages in the areas of customization, cost reduction, and tax optimization.

Nasdaq's Dan Romito on the relationship between activist investors, passive funds and ESG
 
06:53
As index funds look to activists as a way of altering a company’s strategy, IROs and corporate secretaries need to form a united front, says Dan Romito, Nasdaq’s global head of investor analytics, speaking to IR Magazine at the NIRI national conference. This collaboration is changing the way companies should prepare an activist defense plan, Romito explains. ‘If index investors can’t divest, it means that they have to fix management,’ he tells IR Magazine. ‘What that means is preemptively looking at your capital deployment plan. That is the proxy for understanding the degree of vulnerability [to an activist] for your strategy. ‘By assessing whether or not – objectively - you have a capital deployment plan that could be argued is short-term in nature, you are assessing and screening in the way that an activist from both the index side and conventional activist side would.’

How to Invest as a Vegan
 
15:13
How should I invest as a vegan? This is a question I've been asked a few times, and I'm excited to finally be making a video on the topic. Why save? Isn't that just for rich people? No! Biggest misconception ever. If you are on the sense about saving, please read Your Money or Your Life by Vicki Robin and Joe Dominguez. It's the classic book on financial independence, written by a seriously down to earth couple. Check out the latest edition on Amazon: http://amzn.to/2qTgH4O (affiliate) If you're interested in saving and investing, I also strongly recommend this book by John Bogle, the founder of Vanguard: Common Sense Investing http://amzn.to/2rlAJ9G (affiliate) Socially and environmentally responsible investing is a hot topic these days. Currently you can find multiple funds that specialize in socially responsible companies. Rather than suggesting a specific fund, in this video I explain why saving and investing is important (especially for activists) and discuss several different strategies that you might want to combine as part of your investment portfolio. I am personally a huge fan of broad market index investing - Vanguard ETFs are good option for those of you living in the US or Canada. Index investing spreads your risk and frees your time so that you can focus on the issues that matter to you most, rather than constantly watch your portfolio (which is a recipe for investing disaster, since most investors aren't disciplined enough to sit back and watch the stock market plummet without selling off their shares out of sheer panic). Nothing beats index investing in terms of simplicity. But if you prefer, you can select individual companies that have values similar to your own. This can be tricky, as most companies try to portray themselves as environmentally sensitive, etc. If you do choose to go this route, be sure to read through the material on the company carefully, and play close attention to the corporation's financial stewardship - chances are if they aren't good stewards of their financial assets, they are unlikely to be socially or environmentally responsible, either. Finally, there is only one publicly traded vegan company that I know of. That's Tofutti (Ticker symbol: TOFB). I don't consider it a great stock, but if you want to invest in vegan companies, there aren't very many options. Honestly, I would personally spend my money on vegan food, and use my savings to invest in a broad market index fund. Thanks so much for watching!

Sustainable Investment: Geneva Capital Discusses Socially Responsible, SRI, ESG & Impact Investing
 
04:21
Sustainable Investment at http://www.GenevaCapitalSA.com - Swiss-based Private Equity Advisor Geneva Capital S.A. Founding Partner R. Scott Arnell discusses Socially Responsible Investing (SRI), Enviromental Social Governance (ESG) & Impact Investing in Frontier Markets with Jill Malandrino on The Street, an independent US-based financial news and services website co-founded by Jim Cramer, author and host of CNBC's show 'Mad Money' (produced by NBCUniversal News Group, a division of NBCUniversal, owned by Comcast [ CMCSA ]). https://youtu.be/lToUcsegiEM Originally published January 16, 2015. Jill Malandrino: Scott, explain to us what socially responsible investment is, and where has the growth come from in this market? Scott Arnell: Socially responsible investing, sustainable investing is an approach to investing that incorporates and integrates extra-financial data into the investment decision-making process. There are a lot of different ways that this is done, but the objectives are generally the same - that is to achieve competitive or superior market returns, while advancing the values of the institution or the investor that's behind it. Now, it's been growing at double-digit rates all across the different categories in Europe - between 11 and 52% in terms of assets-under-management over the last couple of years. The largest SRI, responsible investing category is exclusion, or sometimes referred to as negative screening. In that type of a strategy, the investment universe necessarily excludes investments in certain types of companies or certain types of stocks. So, examples of that would be investments in tobacco companies may be excluded or companies of cluster munitions or landmines or perhaps investment in companies that have business relations with the Sudanese government. The fastest-growing category in sustainable investment, socially responsible investing in terms of growth, albeit from a smaller base, is impact investing and this is where the investor tries to improve conditions on a socio-economic or environmental basis through the investing process. Some examples of that might be investing in housing for low income families, or in companies that are promoting fair-trade coffee in South America or Africa. Now the growth has always been driven in terms of absolute assets-under-management from pension funds, institutional investors and sovereign wealth funds. Where I work, in Europe, there is legislation in many countries like the UK, France, Germany that requires pension funds and public investment funds to disclose how is their portfolio is impacting social or environmental ESG concerns as well as the investment process. Jill Malandrino: Well your clients are all institutional-based, so the question of does this limit diversification where performance... it's a little bit different than a retail investor, because that would be the obvious question, there are other ways for them to improve performance, but looking at it on an absolute basis, when you employ SRI, do you lose any advantage because of less diversification or missing some of the performances of excluded stocks? Scott Arnell: That is a very good question, and when a client is thinking of getting into SRI, socially responsible investing / sustainable investment, that is the first question that they ask, and consequently, we have looked at that a lot. There are several studies out there and a lot of work that has been done, and I haven’t seen anything that indicates that you will necessarily under-perform the market by excluding aspects in your investing universe especially with the types of industries that typically get excluded in responsible investing. On the other hand, there have been studies out there that are promoting the idea that you will outperform the market by having responsible investing type portfolio. I don’t think the results on that are conclusive either. At the same time, I think there's a growing consensus that companies that do integrate sustainable investing, environmental social and governance, ESG - type factors in their business model and in their management, are better-managed companies and will outperform over the long run, nevertheless most funds and businesses are reporting results on a monthly or quarterly basis. It depends on your investment horizon. Jill Malandrino: OK thanks very much Scott for joining us. For The Street in New York, I'm Jill Malandrino.

Does sustainable investing reduce returns?
 
03:24
AES International - Making the world healthy, wealthy and wise. https://goo.gl/jkUZXd -- Connect with us -- Twitter: https://goo.gl/W8hF3o LinkedIn: https://goo.gl/2xnJLx Facebook: https://goo.gl/dwWb3P Google+: https://goo.gl/kHiAV6 -- Transcript -- Does sustainable investing reduce returns? RP: An important development in the financial industry in recent years has been the growth of sustainable investing. But what exactly does it mean? Here’s Dan Lefkovitz from Morningstar. DL: We define sustainable investing rather broadly. We consider it to be a long-term investment approach that incorporates environmental, social and governance criteria - ESG. And, it can range from sort of old-fashioned, exclusionary screening, like you might’ve seen in an ethical or socially responsible fund. Avoiding stocks of alcohol, tobacco or gambling companies, perhaps coal. It can also be just integrating ESG factors into the overall investment analysis. And that sort of integration is actually the most popular form of sustainable investing today. RP: Passively managed funds are very cost-effective, but, by definition, they generally invest in the whole market. So, is there a conflict between passive investing and sustainability? Dan Lefkovitz says, on the contrary, they complement each other well. DL: It’s interesting, you might think that, but in fact, we’ve recently seen quite the opposite. So, we’ve seen big passive investment managers, the likes of BlackRock, Vanguard, and StateStreet become a lot more active with the companies that they own, simply because they are replicating an index. Now you are seeing passive investment managers who have to own these companies and feel like they’re sort of suck in a long-term relationship with no option for divorce, be more active when it comes to their ownership. RP: If you want to combine passive investing with sustainable investing, there are funds available — particularly exchange-traded funds — that effectively do both. DL: We actually think that sustainable investing lends itself very well to index funds and to exchange-traded funds. The kinds of positive and negative screens that are typically employed with sustainable investing actually fit very well in index and exchange-traded fund format. There also seems to be an alignment between the demographic that sustainability appeals to and the exchange-traded fund. Younger investors like sustainability and they also like exchange-traded funds. RP: Of course, all investors are ultimately looking for good returns. So, is there is a price to pay for investing with your conscience? DL: The number one frequently asked question we get about sustainable investing is: “Do you sacrifice returns if you are investing sustainably?”. And, interestingly, maybe in theory if you’re limiting your universe and not investing in certain companies because they’re not sustainable, that would be limiting. In practice, our data show, that sustainable funds perform on par with their non-sustainable counterparts. There is even some evidence to show, that sustainable investing leads you to companies that are poised for outperformance. RP: That’s it. Thank you to Dan Lefkovitz from Morningstar.

Does sustainable investing reduce returns? Robin Powell Dan Lefkovitz/ Morningstar RP: An important development in the financial industry in recent years has been the growth of sustainable investing. But what exactly does it mean? Here’s Dan Lefkovitz from Morningstar. DL: We define sustainable investing rather broadly. We consider it to be a long-term investment approach that incorporates environmental, social and government criteria - ESG. And, it can range from sort of old-fashioned, exclusionary screening, like you might’ve seen in an ethical or socially responsible fund. Avoiding stocks of alcohol, tobacco or gambling companies, perhaps coal. It can also be just integrating ESG factors into the overall investment analysis. And that sort of integration is actually the most popular form of sustainable investing today. RP: Passively managed funds are very cost-effective, but, by definition, they generally invest in the whole market. So, is there a conflict between passive investing and sustainability? Dan Lefkovitz says, on the contrary, they complement each other well. DL: It’s interesting, you might think that, but in fact, we’ve recently seen quite the opposite. So, we’ve seen big passive investing managers, the likes of BlackRock, Vanguard and StateStreet become a lot more active with the companies that they own, simply because they are replicating an index. Now you are seeing passive investment managers who have to own these companies and feel like they’re sort of suck in a long-term relationship with no option for divorce, be more active when it comes to their ownership. RP: If you want to combine passive investing with sustainable investing, there are funds available — particularly exchange-traded funds — that effectively do both. DL: We actually think that, sustainable investing lends itself very well to index funds and to exchange traded funds. The kinds of positive and negative screens that are typically employed with sustainable investing actually fit very well in index and exchange traded fund format. There also seems to be an alignment between the demographic that sustainability appeals to and the exchange traded fund. Younger investors like sustainability and they also like exchange traded funds. RP: Of course, all investors are ultimately looking for good returns. So, is there is a price to pay for investing with your conscience? DL: The number one frequently asked question we get about sustainable investing is, “Do you sacrifice returns if you are investing sustainably?”. And, interestingly, maybe in theory if you’re limiting your universe and not investing in certain companies because they’re not sustainable, that would be limiting. In practise, our data show, that sustainable funds perform at par with their non-sustainable counterparts. There is even some evidence to show, that sustainable investing leads you to companies that are poised for outperformance. RP: That’s it.
