It’s no secret that Impact Investing has been gaining popularity (we certainly talk about it a lot) . As more and more financial advisors become curious, we’ve found many are surprised to learn of the various ways to invest impactfully, perhaps most notably through Green Bonds.
You may remember our blog “Impact Investing: Aware, Unaware, and Just Don’t Care”, in which we acknowledge that many advisors are unaware to impact investing, or just don’t care about it until they hear a story that leads them to their Impact Aha! moment.

If you have not had your Aha moment yet, we’d like to share two stories in hopes that you will be inspired and enlightened.
