Guest Post on BudgetsAreSexy.com

From time to time other bloggers have been gracious enough to feature my writing on their own site. I love collaborating with other and introducing my readers to other writing styles. Seeking other genres of the financial blogosphere can give all of us new insights.

An awesome guy named J. Money runs BudgetsAreSexy.com and he let me write a post called,

Is It Possible to Invest (Socially) Responsibly? 

I had a great time interacting with his readers and I wanted to make sure all my readers got a chance to think about the topic and see the article.

Here is an excerpt from the post:

 

I want to invest in a way that promotes my ideas, but the more I look into this, the more difficult it becomes to achieve.

When I sat down to develop my investor policy statement, I wanted to find investments that meet my values. I started to look into socially responsible investing.

What is socially responsible investing?

Socially responsibility investing (SRI) is a strategy where an investor preferentially only buys stocks or other investments that support a more socially conscientious idea. This could consist of companies that promote women or other underrepresented groups in leadership roles. This could be mutual funds that buy companies with a commitment to improving environmental factors. Ethical Corporate Governance in business practices is another value frequently cited.

You could exclude companies considered evil, whatever evil is to you. You could only invest in companies that promote good, whatever good is to you.

We should all have a reason for choosing the investments we do. If you haven’t thought about your own investing and what you are trying to accomplish with your asset allocation, I hope the ideas portrayed in the post give you some reasons to identify your asset allocation and stick with it.

Head on over to J$’s site and let me know what you think in the comments below.
