Sustainable Investing

More investors than ever want to make a positive social or environmental impact with their money, while still achieving competitive returns. That’s sustainable investing, and it already accounts for over $30 trillion in assets under management globally.

Why you should consider sustainable investing

Sustainable investing means including not just financial factors but also environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria when you analyze an investment. It rests on the idea that companies are more likely to succeed and generate a strong return if they provide value to all their stakeholders from employees to customers to the broader community.
