Sustainable and Impact Investing

Sustainable and Impact Investing

In making sure that SKWealth is on the forefront of investment options, we are happy to be able to offer our approach to Sustainable and Impact Investing – another way for you to implement your investment strategy.

Sustainable and Impact investing is value-based, values-driven, and impact–oriented. Sustainable and Impact investing incorporates environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria into the investment process to identify well-managed companies with the strongest demonstrated performance in areas of environmental sustainability, social responsibility, and corporate governance.

Interest in sustainable investing is on the rise, as many institutions and individuals seek to express their concerns about sustainability issues through their investments. Sustainable and Impact investing is about integrating values with investment decision making.

Portfolio Construction

Sustainable Investing may be a smarter way to invest:

  • Companies with stronger environmental performance may carry less risk, achieve greater efficiencies and are better positioned to take advantage of opportunities in a global marketplace that is increasingly sensitive to environmental impact.
  • Companies with strong employee relations and workplace practices may enjoy higher productivity, higher morale, lower turnover and absenteeism; and are therefore, better positioned for growth than their less enlightened competitors.
  • Companies with better corporate governance practices may be less likely to have “blow-ups” or other surprises, financial or otherwise.
  • Companies with a specific focus on environmental technologies and solutions may be better positioned to benefit from environmental legislation or regulation in areas such as climate change, energy efficiency and green jobs initiatives.
