Welcome to our January 2021 issue, which looks at the latest SRI Trends Report from the US SIF. Lisa Woll, CEO of US SIF summarizes the impressive report: “…investors are considering ESG factors across $17 trillion of professionally managed assets, a 42 percent increase since 2018. This is a continuation of the significant growth of money managers and institutional investors who consider ESG factors to identify responsible, well-managed companies that will be resilient over the long term. They are investing in companies and products that advance environmental and social issues, including investing in community banks and credit unions.”
I close by mentioning a recent podcast episode I was a guest on: ABQ Business Podcast – Covering Sustainable Business & Impact Investing. Each week host, Jason Rigby interviews business leaders who inspire the vision and the spirit that are intrinsic to every successful entrepreneur.
