WYOMISSING, PA (February 26, 2015) – Investors seeking to align their social values with their investment strategies will have the opportunity to learn about sustainable investing at two free seminars hosted by Sterling Financial Advisors on Thursday, March 19. Registration for the seminar is now underway.
Both seminars will focus on sustainable investing, an investment discipline that considers environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) criteria to generate long-term competitive returns as well as a positive societal impact. SFA Vice President Laurie Peer, CPA, CFP® will be joined by Julie Gorte, PhD and Mary Anne Majerus-Lambert of Pax World Investments, an internationally recognized leader in sustainable investing.
“Sustainable investing is just as much about maximizing the greater good as it is maximizing financial return,” says Peer. “It’s exciting to offer this to our clients, who embrace the idea that their investments can have a broader positive impact on the world around them.”
Designed for investors of all ages, the morning seminar, “Investing for a Better Tomorrow” will deliver a deeper understanding of how sustainable investing works using statistical evidence and real-life market examples. “Investing for a Better Tomorrow” will be held from 8 to 9:30 a.m. at The Highlands of Wyomissing at 2000 Cambridge Avenue and will include a continental breakfast.
Designed specifically for younger investors, “Impacting Investing for the Millennial Generation” will be held from 12 to 1 p.m. at RKL at 1330 Broadcasting Road and will include lunch. Attendees will learn how to build a strong portfolio that also benefits organizations and initiatives that support their ideals.
