Why Sustainable Investing?
Every day more investors are realizing that their capital makes a difference in the world, and they’re incorporating social and environmental impact into their investment decisions. Recap can help you get involved too.
What is Sustainable Investing?
Sustainable investing is a way to deploy investment dollars to support the causes most important to the world. It is sometimes called ESG investing, socially responsible investing, and in the same family as impact investing and values aligned investing. By investing sustainably, you are proactively seeking to support companies that align the broad ideas of sustainability, whether it’s a company that has committed to carbon neutrality by 2030 or one that is working hard to promote gender equality.
Getting started on a sustainable investing journey offers you the occasion to pause and reflect on your values and integrate them into your investment choices. Once you articulate your values, we can make those investment choices that will help you align your investment dollars with those values in a way that doesn’t compromise returns or your conscience.
Sustainable investing, socially responsible investing, impact investing, conscious investing, value aligned investing — all terms which have recently percolated amongst the wealth management circles. What are the nuances and how can I get involved?
Are you one of the 150 million workers who has opted out of the stability of a more predictable corporate job to be self-employed—foregoing steady paychecks and reliable health insurance?
At Recap, we believe that the purpose of a company is to provide the most profitable solutions to society’s problems, not just to make a profit. When this is done in a way that creates or exacerbates other problems, companies will, in the long run, fall short.
Recap is a sustainable investing platform that enables you to easily and transparently invest only in the companies that share the same environmental and social vision as you.
Recap's performance is hypothetical and does not represent the investment performance or the actual accounts of any clients. The securities in the hypothetical portfolio were selected with the full benefit of hindsight, after their performance over the period shown was known. The results achieved in our simulations do not guarantee future investment results. The model performance information is based on the back-tested performance of hypothetical investments over the time periods indicated. “Back-testing” is a process of objectively simulating historical investment returns by applying a set of rules for buying and selling securities, and other assets, backward in time, testing those rules, and hypothetically investing in the securities and other assets that are chosen.
