and create a better world.

When we invest our money, we can cast a vote for our values.

There’s a strong and quiet growth in companies that strive to not only make money but also to have a positive influence on the world. These are companies that seek to find a win/win, looking to benefit owners, shareholders, employers, employees, and the community.

Increasingly, companies are coming to my attention that create profit with purpose. That hold to family values and try to minimize their environmental impact.

Of course, all investors look to purchase stocks of profitable companies: companies that make money. Socially responsible investing is the process of making investment decisions using traditional financial analysis while also evaluating performance on environmental, social and governance factors. This extra level of research gives fund managers an even more accurate picture of each company. It’s not something new or different, it’s an extension of sound investment practice.

A socially responsible investor looks for companies that are profitable and reflect values that may include:

  • Respect and dignity for all people
  • A world at peace and free from violence
  • Global Justice
  • Honest, Compassionate Business Management
  • Community Health
  • Good Environmental Stewardship

These investors are applying part of my program Mindful Money Management.

Mindful Money Management with Lynn Whetham

As shareholders, these investors influence companies to reflect these values.

Given the choice, would you choose to invest in companies that reflect these values? Would you want these companies to be strong and thriving businesses? Would you vote for companies with strong ethics?

We can have profit and protect our values. Profit and values must go together.

When we are mindful about the way we invest, we cast a vote for our values and we practice Mindful Money Management.

Join the mindful and create a better world.
