Responsible investing

Invest with an impact. 

Responsible investment (RI) is the integration of environmental, social and governance factors (ESG) into the selection and management of investments.

As a member of G&F, you have access to investment solutions* that focus on investing in companies that have a positive impact on the environment, treat their employees well and are well governed. You can invest in good companies. Evidence suggests that a comprehensive process of ESG integration is successful in achieving both financial and social value.**

71% of Canadian investors say it’s important for financial advisors to offer socially responsible investments to build strong client relationships.**

Smart Money Episode 9: Socially Responsible Investing

With socially responsible investments, your portfolio manager considers the environmental, social and governance practices of the businesses you're investing in. In this podcast, G&F/Credential Asset Management Inc. Investment Specialist, Zaiba Riaf, shares how to incorporate socially responsible investments into a portfolio.

Responsible investments may be right for you if:

  • You are concerned about environmental risks, such as issues in species extinction, pollution and climate change.
  • You are concerned about social risks, including human rights, worker safely and aboriginal rights.
  • You are concerned about governance risks and the way companies are run.
