Socially Responsible Investments

Most people work extremely hard for the income they earn over the course of their lifetime. Some people will come into large sums of money throughout the years through windfalls or good investments. No matter how money is acquired, honoring the effort it took to obtain it is important. An inheritance received is someone's life work and should be honored. Investing wisely now can mean having a better standard of living in the future. Here are a few benefits of using socially responsible investments. 

Traditional financial advisors and well-meaning loved ones often feel confident with established businesses that have a record of longevity or are currently making exceptional dividends for their investors. Their recommended list of popular companies may be brands purchased on a regular basis or easily identifiable. Researching the history and current business practices of these companies often reveals more questions. After thoroughly researching the details of the company, many potential investors will feel unsettled. There are investments that benefit certain groups of people, treat their employees well, and their business practices are not harming the environment.

Companies that are harming local people who source their products or confirmed instances of child labor will be excluded. The company's management style must be both ethical and socially responsible. The products they produce will exclude toxic substances that have no positive benefits with continuous use. Examples are companies whose main products are gambling, wine, beer, hard liquor, and tobacco products. Work with a socially responsible investment advisor to obtain information on companies that are involved positively with the environment by actively using clean and different forms of energy that do not harm the earth. Their company goals with be in line with positive social justice issues and they are environmentally sustainable. Clean technology is often used in all aspects of the production of products and in daily operations. Business practices and money given is often available via requested reports or on the company website for review. 

Socially responsible investments may give a certain amount of money towards affordable housing options, education, small business loans, or personal loans. When making a final decision on which socially responsible investments to choose, look for organizations that are in alignment with personal goals or what sits well. Moving forward with investment plans is important to secure personal finances. Take time to schedule an appointment with a socially responsible investment advisor to start an investment plan.
