When investing in a company, you need to make sure they are doing the right thing and that they are profitable. Companies that do the wrong thing expose themselves to massive risks that could have a huge financial impact in the future. I've attached my notes on SRI below: Involves: Environmental pollution Public concerns (Genetically modified food) Corporate Governance. (Is chairman and CEO same person) Focus of regulatory framework. (greenhouse gas emissions Labour issues. (Safe working environment) SRI is any issue that may not have a short term impact but could have significant negative or positive impacts for asset owners in the long term. SRI has a financial impact. Its not a Moral Judgement OR an Investment Judgement. It includes both. It is the right thing to do and its in the interest of the investor Includes: Ethical business practices Transparent reporting Community support Black economic empowerment Methods: Active asset management with regards to voting in board rooms Enforcing good corporate governance Aim for investments that have a positive contribution to society Also focus on unlisted socially responsible opportunities (Educational Entrepreneurs) Approaches: Passive screening. Invest in an ESG benchmark index Positive screening. Establish a criteria before an investment is included in a portfolio Negative screening. Exclude companies on the basis of ESG performance. UN Global Compact: Human Rights International Labour Organisation (no child labour) Environmental issues No to bribery and corruption Trustees feel SRI implementation is too difficult and that it goes against their mandate of sole responsibility of maximising investment returns. Some critics say that negative screening is not consistent with Modern Portfolio Theory as it limits the investment universe thus lowering diversification, but benefits of diversification are marginal and fall rapidly. Most important issue is if negative screening causes a big deviation from benchmark, if a tobacco company like BAT is one of the biggest in the index. Others believe business should stick to doing business. Trustees must: instruct managers to take SRI into account instruct managers to engage with firms in which they invest Independent non-executive directors may not be considered independent the longer they hold their position Factors pushing ESG into the mainstream Nexus between ESG issues and financial performance Stakeholder activism Reputational concerns Consumer pressure and public opinion Pressure from research bodies Pressure from insurance industries Introduction of corporate environmental reporting obligations Rise of the global company Adoption of investment guidelines by the World Bank Growing corporate Transparency IT revolution Social Media pressure Regulation mandating disclosure of ESG investment policies Traits Discipline Transparency Independence Accountability Appropriate behaviour Fairness Social responsibility Good stakeholder relations Communication and disclosure Effective leadership Financial and economic performance Respect for shareholder’s rights Meeting stakeholder obligations Embracing challenges of their business environment

What is SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE INVESTING? What does SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE INVESTING mean? SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE INVESTING meaning - SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE INVESTING definition - SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE INVESTING explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Socially responsible investing (SRI), or social investment, also known as sustainable, socially conscious, "green" or ethical investing, is any investment strategy which seeks to consider both financial return and social good to bring about a social change. Recently, it has also become known as "sustainable investing" or "responsible investing". There is also a subset of SRI known as "impact investing", devoted to the conscious creation of social impact through ainvestment. In general, socially responsible investors encourage corporate practices that promote environmental stewardship, consumer protection, human rights, and diversity. Some avoid businesses involved in alcohol, tobacco, fast food, gambling, pornography, weapons, contraception/abortifacients/abortion, fossil fuel production, and/or the military. The areas of concern recognized by the SRI practitioners are sometimes summarized under the heading of ESG issues: environment, social justice, and corporate governance. "Socially responsible investing" is one of several related concepts and approaches that influence and, in some cases govern, how asset managers invest portfolios. The term "socially responsible investing" sometimes narrowly refers to practices that seek to avoid harm by screening companies included in an investment portfolio. However, the term is also used more broadly to include more proactive practices such as impact investing, shareholder advocacy and community investing. According to investor Amy Domini, shareholder advocacy and community investing are pillars of socially responsible investing, while doing only negative screening is inadequate.

Sustainable investment is an investment strategy that acknowledges the relevance of environmental, social and governance, or ESG, factors in investment decision making and its following generation of sustainable financial returns. As Laura Berry, Executive Director with the Interfaith Center for Corporate Responsibility explains, the importance of sustainable investment that considers social investment factors is fundamental to meeting fiduciary responsibilities. As an active investor, CalSTRS recognizes that environmental, social and governance, or ESG, issues affect the performance of the investment portfolio. This video examines those issues from the perspective of an active sustainable investor; it is not intended to directly reflect the views of CalSTRS.

http://IncredibleRetirement.com 800-393-1017 I just read a report saying that socially responsible investing represents almost 25% of US based investments. Socially responsible investing is where you avoid investing your money in areas that are not in alignment with your personal beliefs and values. Maybe don't want your money invested in companies that sell tobacco products, alcohol, weapons, or maybe use animal testing in research and development. Or you might be concerned about environmental, social or religious issues. Chances are, whatever cause is important to you, there's a mutual fund designed with you in mind. New evidence from one of the world's largest sovereign wealth funds shows that socially responsible investors are losing out on significant profits in their investments. Excluding tobacco companies and weapon manufacturers reduced the returns by almost 2% per year. As you might imagine, Wall Street has also come up with investment products that target these specific companies, sometimes called sin stocks. A portfolio of so called sin stocks outperformed the S&P 500 from 1996 through October of 2016 by 3.7% per year. The bottom line is there are many forms of socially responsible investing and socially responsible investment products. I remember many years ago a software company contacted us to try and sell us their socially responsible screening program. It would screen existing mutual funds and give the fund a red, yellow or green light. I was shocked to find that a religious based mutual fund managed by a large and well known religious organization actually failed the socially responsible screening based on the algorithms of the software. Their fund got the dreaded red light. I pretty sure the religious organization would disagree with the software's findings. Because of the wide variety of socially responsible and how you define socially responsible one person to the other or from one investment product to the other, the odds are stacked against you in achieving competitive, let alone above average investment returns. My suggestion to you is to NOT limit your investment selection to so called socially responsible investments. Instead invest focusing on total return. Then take some of your profits that you will probably get by avoiding socially responsible investing and use those profits to donate to the causes that are important to you. Chances are you will make a bigger financial impact on the charities and causes that are important to you!

Bad practices would be anything to do with alcohol, tobacco, weapons, gambling, fast food or sugary foods. Socially Responsible Funds Underperform Why do people do this?

Am I a socially conscious investor (also known as a socially responsible investor)? A subscriber recently asked me this very question. Social conscious investing is popular these days, as many people want to do the right thing. That being said, I also believe that social responsible investing could lead to unintended consequences. Learn about my personal values-based investing strategy, and how each dividend investment requires an open mind and consideration of all pros and cons. Learn why blanket statements and strategies are potentially dangerous in the world of investing. At a high level, I believe in the following concepts for my dividend growth investing strategy. 1) I believe that consumers should have choice. 2) I believe in the power of moderation and self-control. 3) I believe that good deeds go rewarded. In the long run, people and companies that drive value will be rewarded. When people approach social conscious investing, they can be quick to pass judgment. While blanket statements are easy, they can also be dangerous. Today, I go through three industry sectors that prove the analysis (of whether a company is socially conscious or not) is super complex: 1) Energy / Oil 2) Technology 3) Fast Food Learn how companies in energy and fast food may look "un-responsible" at first glance, but there are actually two sides to the equation. Learn how technology companies may look "responsible" at first glance, but again there are two sides to that story. At the end of the day, dividend growth investors are marrying their positions for decades. It's important to follow one's values in life and finance. If one does not follow their values, they may be too quick to sell a position. My strategy is one about avoiding fast conclusions and taking every company on a case-by-case decision.
