Socially Responsible Investing is about making your investment selections support your ethical values without sacrificing performance. This approach is also sometimes called ESG investing for Environmental, Social and Governance. Some Mutual and Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) label themselves ESG or Socially Responsible. The theme of the fund is often in the title. When it is not obvious by the title, read the Investment Objective on the Fund Fact sheet.
The well-respected rating company Morningstar has developed a measurement tool to rate how well the fund is accomplishing its stated ESG goals. Look for the globes on the Fund Fact sheet. The highest rating is five globes.
