I recently made my first impact investment. It’s a gender equality ETF that invests in companies with women represented at the highest levels of corporate leadership. Although at the time I had my doubts, a year and a half later the investment has done well and I’m feeling good about supporting a cause I feel passionate about.

All of this has got me curious about that “ESG Thing.” So I asked Sterling Shea, Global Head of Wealth & Asset Management at Dow Jones, to join me and shed some light on it.

You’ll hear answers to these questions:

  • So, SRI, ESG, impact investing. What do all the buzzwords mean?
  • What is the latest academic research saying about the tradeoff between purpose and performance? Is there one?
  • Do you see high net worth and UHNW families demanding this in the future? Are they now?
  • How can advisors learn more about this?
