Profit and Principles

What you do with your money really does matter. You can invest responsibly, integrating environmental, social and governance issues into investment decision-making and ownership practices. You can be part of the solution rather than the problem by encouraging companies to address the world’s environmental and social challenges as business opportunities. You can know what your money is up to – what the companies do and how well they relate to their stakeholders. You can do well and do good.

Consumer Magazine recommends that you talk to a financial adviser who holds the Responsible Investment Certification Symbol before embarking on any new investments. Dr Rodger Spiller was the first financial adviser in New Zealand to receive this certification. He is one of very few financial advisers in New Zealand financial, specialising in this field of responsible investment.
