Despite the fact that Hollywood tends to portray everyone involved in the stock market like The Wolf of Wall Street, investing doesn't demand you sell your soul.
Seriously, we respect that you're a socially-conscious individual. You recycle, you volunteer, you take short showers, you kiss dogs, and smile at babies, or vice versa. All in all, you're a responsible resident of planet earth. That's great.
So, of course, you want to invest with the same principles you live by. Well, thanks to socially responsible investing, your desire to do good doesn't have to conflict with your desire for financial freedom.
Here's the score. Like-minded folks with financial expertise created investing opportunities designed to make the world a better place, and by going this route, you definitely won't be going it alone.
