Socially Responsible Investing (“SRI”)

Socially Responsible Investing (“SRI”)

Socially Responsible Investing or “SRI” is an investment style that is often referred to as “do no harm.”  It is an investment strategy that uses various screens or filters (such as ESG factors) to eliminate securities from an investment portfolio that are considered to be harmful to the environment (e.g. coal power) or to society (alcohol, tobacco, pornography, gambling).  This latter category is also sometimes referred to as “sin stocks” as they deal with sectors that are considered by some to be unethical or immoral. See also “Sustainable Investing.”
