Ditching Some Conventional Wisdom...
My column today defies the conventional wisdom that a responsible investment portfolio (geared towards SRI, impact investing, etc.) will probably underperform other types of portfolios. There is increasing evidence that that's not the case, and in today's piece, I used a lot of GovernanceMetrics' data that was released earlier this week (their report was very interesting, and also well highlighted the complexities of this kind of investing).
At any rate, interest in this kind of investing is definitely on the upswing, and it's becoming clear that "heartfelt" investing doesn't mean wrecked returns.
Have a great weekend, Fools!
