The Socially Inspired Investor Digest

I’m starting with the man in the mirror

I’m asking him to change his ways

And no message could have been clearer

If you want to make the world a better place

Take a look at yourself then make a change

– Man in the Mirror – Michael Jackson

The Socially Inspired Investor in this issue focuses on the very inspiring ways the investment community has come together to make the world a better place.

Socially inspired investing has made a difference.

Why we are finally moving in the right direction.

We know because in this, our 5th issue, we are told by the pros why they are optimistic, inspired, and more empowered than ever before – and why we should be as well.

Our Spotlight On section poses the question to leaders in the investment community, “What progress in ESG investing inspires you today?”.

Surely there is a lot of agreement. They cite changing social attitudes passionately fueled by newer generations, the recognition from authoritative sources that companies that lean toward social and environmental awareness tend to do better. And then of course there is a myriad of technologoical advancements that now allow the world to operate on a lower carbon footprint.

In our SII podcast hosted by Pat O’Neill, we hear from Mr. Georg Kell himself, a pioneer in the ESG world and author of the upcoming book Sustainable Investing: A pathway to a new horizon definitely shares his inspiration. Georg, brings to life the maturation of the socially inspired investing movement.

No doubt daunting challenges still lie ahead. But we can face them, not with exasperation from what still needs to be done, but with satisfaction from what we have been able to accomplish so far. Let’s keep the faith together.

Thank you for spending time with us and feel free to share the Socially Inspired Investor with others you think may be interested.
