Make the most of your hard-earned assets
To make the most of your hard-earned assets, it is critical to understand and manage investment risks and create a portfolio tailored to your needs. On top of basic financial goals, an increasing number of investors are looking to invest in companies that align with their values. There are a growing number of mutual funds and managed accounts that intentionally invest in companies that are creating value for employees, communities, and the world…and benefiting shareholders at the same time. It’s also possible to avoid investing in busienss activities that you may find objectionable (such as tobacco, pornography, gambling, abortion, etc.)
You can apply the same principles of sound investing (diversification, asset allocation, risk managment) and keep a clean conscience at the same time. You don’t have to choose between your integrity and being a prudent investor.
