Get connected with our team and we’ll begin a conversation about the challenges you are currently facing your goals for the future. Either in-person or virtually, we’ll discuss how we can best work together and build a plan. We’ll map out your financial journey and walk alongside you to ensure alignment in your values and goals for achieving financial wellness.
In order to build a solid plan, we will need to gain a better understanding of your values, goals and concerns. This will help us to ask the appropriate questions in developing your plan. Our team will also need to analyze other information concerning assets and liabilities, sources of income, tax information, etc.
Our choices reflect who we are. We believe you should not have to check your values at the door when talking about your investments. To help our clients better align their values and their portfolios, we can include environmental, social and governance (ESG) metrics in portfolio construction.
Environmental considerations include impact on the natural world. Social considerations include labor standards, data protection, and human rights. Governance includes standards for how a company is run such as executive compensation, board composition, and audit committee structure.
A common worry we hear is that considering factors beyond traditional financial metrics will lead to lower returns. ESG investing is rapidly gaining popularity as companies consider a broader range of stakeholders and shift their focus to long-term profitability. As a result, we’ve learned that trading values for returns is no longer required. Through an integrated vs. exclusionary approach, we seek fund managers who target firms that are willing to improve in the ESG spectrum and demonstrate a commitment to do so as well as those that have a history of doing so.
