Socially Responsible Investing (SRI) is a way to use the financial system to change society by way of incorporating values into investment decisions. It’s an investment strategy, which seeks to maximize both financial return and social good. Proudly, Cascade Financial Strategies is the only Central Oregon member of the U.S. Forum for Sustainable and Responsible Investment (US SIF).
With the rising amount of publicity on the possible impact of climate changes, SRI is becoming more and more popular as both individuals and institutions are seeking to align the direction of their investments with their core values.
In a recent report by Morgan Stanley, one dollar of every six dollars is professionally managed in the United States, with almost $6.7 trillion in some form of sustainable investments.
