What is yield positive

Yield Positive’s mission is to help everyday investors yield positive – positive returns, positive impact – through sustainable investing. We speak your language, not banker language. Our language is one of doing good in the world while making profit.

Investing is scary. Sustainable investing is confusing. We aim to translate the risks and complications to provide you with understandable and relevant content. This content is for educational purposes, to help you to make the best financial decisions for your economic situation and in alignment with your values. We all have different value priorities so we provide a diverse set of information.

Our current focus is everyday investors in the United States. However, if you’d like to write a post about investment in another country, please let us know.
