What does voting with your wallet mean? Let your investment dollar be your agent for change. Make money and do good simultaneously!
You want to change the world - bonds are a better way to make your voice heard.
A bond is a contract. Like any contract, it is governed by specific terms. ESG is a part of that contract.
Is their ESG real or fake? Speak your voice and vote with your wallet.
Money is the most powerful agent for change. We impact these changes when we boycott a store or a brand. Did you know you can do the same thing when it comes to your investments?
You probably heard many investment professionals talk about ESG (aka Environmental, Social, or Governance) for stocks or ETFs. We think bonds are the ultimate ESG investments.
Why? Because a bond is a promise that is defined by a contract with specifically defined terms. Unlike stocks which are “residual stubs” and the next CEO can simply change their mind, bonds are effectively set in stone. Without your consent as the bond investor, the borrower cannot change the terms of the contract. Hence, an ESG bond will stay ESG.
Here is a cool secret about bonds. As more of us care about ESG in our bond investments, more ESG bonds will be offered and issued. Voicing our views through investments and public discourse will convince more and more corporate CEOs and CFOs to take ESG seriously. They'll realize that they can have their cake and eat it too by being financially prudent in issuing ESG bonds and making the world a better place.
