A successful money manager and leading practitioner in the field offers sound advice on both ethical considerations and ``how-to'' financial strategies for investing in responsible funds, organizations and managers in global markets, not only to increase your net worth but to make the world a better place to live. Introduces a successful system earning high returns for funds managed by such proven players as Pax World, Dreyfus, Calvert, Parnassus and U.S. Trust. Reviews investment and social issues including corporate governance, women, family concerns and Third World economic development.
From the Back Cover
Grocery store products packaged to deliver the most environmentally correct message. Large brokerage firms offering "green" and socially responsible investment products. Even an environmental bank. If you'd imagined all this in college, and dreamed of a large socially screened mutual fund outperforming the S&P 500 by as much as 11%, your father would have said--"Nice idea, but it'll never happen!" It happened. As the junk bond era fades from the scene and deregulation turns Wall Street back into a prehistoric jungle, socially responsible investments are outperforming traditional investments. Not just sometimes--but consistently and reliably. Investing with Your Conscience tells you why--and how to participate in an increasingly profitable investment strategy. It analyzes the influences of apartheid; the global environment; corporate governance; women, health and family; domestic, social and economic justice; as well as Third World development on a corporation's value. And it gives you the knowledge, resources, and tools you need to manage your money well, increase your net worth, and make the world a better place--all at the same time. You'll find clear, demystifying discussions of measuring performance, setting goals, selecting an investment professional, and making investments based on sound financial, economic, and social analyses. And you'll discover how to pinpoint investment opportunities and identify those socially responsible stocks that will make the best investments. Let your conscience be your guide.
