ESG investing isn’t just for Hippies and Gen-Z. It’s about driving returns and growing your practice.
James Katz, CEO of Humankind Investments and Nick Cantrell, Founder of Green Future Wealth Management discuss all things ESG. Studies indicate that ESG investing themes are growing in importance to your clients, even if they haven’t said anything to you.
But why? And how do you go about offering ESG investments “the right way” to your clients?
