Millionaire Expat Interview On Socially Responsible Investing

This morning, the Dubai Eye breakfast show hosts interviewed me about socially responsible investing.

After we finished the live show, one of the hosts said, “I wouldn’t invest in such funds because they don’t make good profits.”

That’s the general perception. But it simply isn’t true.

Over the past 5 years and 10 years, Canada’s Jantzi Social Index beat the Canadian stock market index.

Vanguard’s U.S. Socially responsible index has a better track record than the S&P 500 Index over the past 10 years.

And the iShares Global Sustainability Index performed very closely to the global stock market index.

I wish I had more time to give specifics on the show.
