Socially Responsible Investing (SRI)

Courses In This Course

The idea of socially responsible investing (SRI) has seen a surge in interest in recent years. However, SRI is not merely a fashion or a fad – it has been said that roots of the industry can be traced back hundreds of years to the mid-18th century. What’s more, suggestions that the recent financial crisis might see the idea of SRI fade into oblivion appear to be wide of the mark. The reality is that the consideration of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors, as well as ethical and sustainable criteria, has become more important than ever for many investment professionals.
