Socially Responsible Investing
A Proven Record
Over the past few decades, socially responsible investing (SRI) has grown faster than the broader universe of professionally managed investments in the United States.
Money invested in SRI strategies:
- - Topped $3 trillion in 2010
- - Grew more than 380% between 1995 and 2010. (During the same period, broader strategies grew only 260%.)
- - Attracted nearly $1 of every $8 dollars under professional management in the US
Academic research* continues to demonstrate that companies that practice good corporate policies often make sound investments. Further, studies show that by excluding companies that expose themselves to social and environmental risks, investors can contribute to their investment success.
