Invest with a Social Conscience
ESG – Environmental, Social & Governance
The Logic of Sustainable Investing with Rutherford Hughes Ltd with ESG investing
To invest well, we will have identified what you wish to achieve and over what time period.
We will have understood the two fundamentals of investment, they are, diversity and the time invested.
We look for diversity to reduce investment risk as hindsight has never really worked as an investment tool.
We look for time invested to lessen the effects of asset volatility, secure in the knowledge that no-one knows when to invest or disinvest on a consistent basis.
So, what else is there?
As better research and information becomes available on an investment fund, there is third logic that appears, the ESG investing risk factor.
The ESG investing risk factor tells us how exposed a fund is to the risk of damaging the environment, suffering the impact of poor social policy on its workforce/surroundings and how strong its corporate governance is to control its actions.
The logic is that funds that invest in stock with a low ESG investing risk factor are likely to have a more sustainable future.
As investors become savvier about what they are investing in, the appetite for cleaner, better run companies with a strong social conscience is all too apparent.
The future we believe is sustainable investing using the ESG risk factor.
