Ask Sallie: How Can I Align My Values with My Investment Portfolio? (Video)

By Sallie Krawcheck

Sallie’s answer:

This is a question we’re starting to get a lot. All investing, everything you do with your money, has impact. So I think the real answer is: Be aware, do your research.

There’s now a much greater array of investments that are aligned with values — such as being kind to and improving the environment, societal issues.

And, of course, our favorite at Ellevest, which is investing behind other women.

When you get money in the hands of women and they build their wealth, they invest 90% of that back into their communities. They give a greater percentage of their wealth to nonprofits.

One way, we believe, you can invest your values is to invest through Ellevest (or someone else) in impact portfolios that give money to other women.
