Traditionally, investors have focused on balancing risk and return. The objective has been to maximise the value of the investment while minimising the risks. While this strategy remains as relevant as ever, there’s a third element that’s rapidly gaining traction in the minds of investors.
With globalisation, social media, overpopulation-driven poverty and increasing attention toward the climate crisis, most investors today want to know broadly where their money is being applied.
Sustainable investing involves deploying your funds in a targeted manner into the shares and bonds of companies that focus on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) aspects. The objective of these firms is not restricted to making profits. They also want to make a positive impact on the world.
Sustainable investing can help you deploy your money in a responsible manner. Find out how Standard Chartered Singapore Wealth Management provides Sustainable Investing solutions that match your investment goals.
