Guest, James Lumberg explains the meaning of Impact Investing Strategies. He provides us with a solid education and what to look for. He follows up with an amazing review of the history of returns for those companies that have socially and environmentally responsible governance plans in place. It is interesting to note the performance over the years – actually it is quite impressive.
The markets, central banks and the recent sell-off in bonds are discussed along with what you will need to know to keep you well apprise of markets and your investments.
