Building A Low Cost Portfolio With Socially Responsible Funds

earth

Some of my friends don’t feel good about investing.

They want to make money. But they won’t support businesses that build missiles, hook kids on cigarettes or extract air polluting fossil fuels.

That rules out most actively managed funds and indexes. They don’t discriminate against specific types of companies.

Investors wanting to align their money with their ethics have two choices. They could select their own individual stocks.

Or they could buy funds called Socially Responsible Investments, also known as SRIs.

    Hi Andrew! I’m really interested with your new perspective. By the way, I would like to enquire which brokerage firms do you use to purchase your ETF. I favour brokerage firms with low fees and no hidden fees. Thanks! Hope you can reply asap!
