Socially Responsible Investing Quickly Explained
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

Impact Investing: Where Are the Deals?
Doing well by accomplishing good is the goal of every socially conscious investor. Despite the demand for products that provide both financial and social return, the opportunities are still limited. While investment vehicles from microfinance funds to private equity and structured-debt products are proliferating, it remains difficult to access deals and even harder to track performance. The word about these investment opportunities and solid information about their impact and financial returns need to reach a much wider audience. Panelists will single out successful investment products across asset classes and sectors and suggest how to provide investors with better historical performance information and more solid outlooks.

What is ESG Investing?
http://www.Gabelli.com Gabelli managing director of ESG, Christina Alfandary discusses the importance and impact of ESG investing. If you liked this video subscribe to our channel! Invest with Us 1-800-GABELLI (800-422-3554) http://facebook.com/gabellitv GabelliTV Footage Credit: Author: mediagl Author webpage: https://vimeo.com/mediagl Author: Alexander Eberle Author webpage: https://vimeo.com/alexandereberle Author: Tim Williams @timallday Author webpage: https://vimeo.com/timw Author: mediagl Author webpage: https://vimeo.com/mediagl Transcript: Gabelli recently presented a session on Environmental, Social and Governance investing to RIAs at a major Conference . We wanted to highlight some key takeaways. First, ESG, Impact and Sustainable investing is becoming increasingly recognized as a way for asset managers, and asset owners to use a broader set of information to evaluate companies’ risk exposure to natural resource constraints. It provides insight into overall quality of management. This is supported by several academic research studies. Integrated ESG investing is not about negative screening anymore but about identifying companies that have better ways of managing a business which is forward looking. Research has shown that top ESG scoring companies often outperform the market over the long run with lower volatility. For this reason, financial advisers should recognize that Sustainable Investing is becoming more important and mainstream to both institutional and individual investors. The Second Takeaway is that With 30 trillion of wealth anticipated to transfer over the next decades from Baby Boomers to GenX and Millennials, it is notable that Millennials and women are particularly interested in ESG and responsible investing. Surveys show 73% of Millennials and 60% of women investors consider these issues. . Whereas Baby Boomers made their money and gave it away through philanthropy, Millennials are committed to doing something impactful with their investments immediately. AND ESG investing has evolved beyond just feeling good. By investing in companies which are managing resources better, It is about mobilizing capital to address large, global challenges like climate change, water scarcity, Product quality, employee safety and business ethics. The next generation is committed to using investments to positively change corporate responsibility and the world. We would point out that while studies show many investors would base purchasing decisions on personal values, less than 15% say they understand how to invest their money in a way that supports their values. The majority of individual have not yet heard of sustainable or responsible investing. So at Gabelli Funds, we see Advisers and asset managers playing a key role in educating investors about this important and growing area . 61% of investors indicate their Adviser has not mentioned sustainable investing to them. We suggest Advisers think about ways to engage their clients on ESG investing. This might be connecting it to personal interests or using it as a bridge from one generation into the next generation. We see Millennial investors become interested when they feel connected to what their investments might accomplish for more than just themselves. Advisers should see ESG and Impact Investing as the next step of GOALS based investing. Lastly, Because Gabelli has 30 yrs of experience in Responsible Investing and we are integrating ESG factors more in the way we look at companies, we welcome opportunities to partner with advisers as they educate their clients in the important area of ESG investing. It Is about People, the Planet and Profits

What is Impact Investing?
Do you wonder what impact investing is all about? Watch this short video to get up to speed..! DOEN Participaties B.V., Finance in Motion, Volta Capital and Pymwymic teamed up to spread the word about impact investing. "According to research by the Financial Times the amount of capital invested in impact has doubled over the last five years. But what is it exactly? The most accepted definition for Impact Investing is: “investing with the specific objective of achieving positive social and/or environmental impact as well as financial return”. So, a positive impact AND financial return. Impact investing is not an asset class. It is an investment approach across all asset -classes, -themes & -geographies and has a full range of risks and returns. For example, impact investments can range from: ‘a direct private equity investment in a fintech company that’s providing access to finance to underserved populations’, to ‘a loan supporting sustainable agricultural businesses’. Or from ‘a note subscription in a renewable energy fund’ to ‘a share purchase in a sustainable forestry fund’. When looking at the Impact side one can ask: where do you want to create impact? This can be in services or in products provided; such as building solar powered lamps for developing regions, developing natural washing products, or producing healthy foods. Impact can also be made in the way business are run. Or even on multiple levels, such as safeguarding the mining of fair raw materials, honest working conditions, waste management or offering jobs to those who have less opportunities. Such frontrunner companies aim to change the entire industry they work in! When considering to start impact investing, there are a few things we can advise: Decide on what you care about and what your strategy is to approach this Carve-out some funds to experiment, and Learn from experienced peers, professionals and intermediaries Then… just get started. Don’t wait."

Speaker Bio: Tom Van Dyck has been a leader in the field of socially-responsible investing since starting at Dean Witter in 1983. Description of Talk: With today's stock and bond markets in constant flux, and the concept of long-term investing used often to camouflage outmoded styles of wealth preservation and appreciation, how are individual investors - of any size - to see a way forward? Socially-responsible investments can deliver returns that are market rate and durable, as Tom Van Dyck explains in this talk. About TEDx: In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

How private investment can save the World | Justin Sykes | TEDxStPeterPort
Justin Sykes presented a vision for the future of Guernsey's finance industry, where it seeks to promote itself as center of a new movement of "Financing for Good" where private capital managed by and through Guernsey is invested in solving some of the world;s most pressing challenges (poverty alleviation, universal education, tacking climate change etc). In this scenario Guernsey develops itself as jurisdiction of choice for the fast growing impact investment sector (investments with social and / or environmental outcomes as well as financial returns) serving to end inaccurate perceptions about the island whilst driving significant new business here. Justin Sykes is an economic development specialist with over 15 years’ experience in structuring, financing and implementation of innovative and large-scale impact investments for international charities, development agencies, foundations and the private sector that have created thousands of businesses and new jobs. Justin is the Managing Director of Innovest Advisory, a boutique consultancy company which works at the nexus between innovation and social impact and seeks to link socially minded investors with impact investment opportunities within Guernsey and internationally. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
