The Now Crowd presents: Impact Investing with Barry Coates

Ethical investment. Would you be happy if you found out your Kiwisaver funds were being invested in fossil fuels?

Most investment strategies have traditionally focused on financial returns and risks, ignoring the impact on the environment and society.

There is a growing movement of investors that understand the connection between investment and real world impact. They want their funds to avoid pollution or exploitation, and to invest in companies with high ethical standards.

The Now Crowd is excited to bring you our next online lunchtime session with Barry Coates. Barry is the founder of Mindful Money, a charity with the mission to empower all New Zealanders to be responsible for how they invest their savings.

The discussion will focus on answering some of the following questions:

  • How do I know where my KiwiSaver is being invested?
  • How can I invest ethically whilst balancing returns?
  • What are my options? How do I find a fund that is ethical but fits my investment strategy?
