The concept of “Yield Positive” is that everyday investors can generate positive financial returns & positive impact. This double positive approach to investing is also known as sustainable investing.
Sustainable investing strategies differ for every investor, depending on financial goals and sustainability priorities. There is no predetermined sustainable investing recipe. Therefore, the Yield Positive platform was created to provide individual investors with different sustainable investing ingredients. Read more about the genesis of Yield Positive.
The highest priority sustainable investment themes will vary depending on investors’ values. Themes can include climate action, racial justice, community development, gender equality, gun control, and LGBTQI+ rights.
Options for sustainable investing exist within all investment types e.g. bonds, mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs), stocks. These sustainable investment products may fall within a variety of investment vehicles. These vehicles are e.g. 401(k)s, savings accounts, IRA and Roth IRAs.
