Vanderbilt prides itself on being a firm specializing in ESG & Impact Investing, finance with a purpose. We take satisfaction in knowing that many of our Advisors are steering their clients into investing in a better and healthier future for our planet. While we support those methods to create a more sustainable planet through investing, we also do our part as a firm directly.
It's Earth Day 2022 and it's a day that has us reflecting on what we can do to help the earth and our environment for us and future generations. This is a sentiment that has become increasingly prevalent in many different fields and can be something that is incorporated into people's portfolios and financial decisions.
We’ve seen the phrases “unprecedented times”, “challenging times” and even “ushering in a new era” in countless articles, emails, and commercials when it comes to the COVID-19 epidemic. And it’s true, we are in unprecedented times in which our human activity has been halted, or paused, for a brief moment in time to ensure the safety of our communities. While the media has focused more on the many negative effects of this pause, portions of the environment have seen positive outcomes.
As "The Sustainable Wealth Management Firm", making an impact and giving back to our community is at the core of the Vanderbilt Financial Group values. Our team, family and friends came together for a week of impactful actions that helped clean-up our environment and bring awareness to the growing movement of sustainable living. Read on for a recap on our fun week celebrating the Earth and living our values inside and outside of our professional lives....
Note from the editor: For Earth Day 2019, the team at VFG is celebrating with a week full of activities and consciousness around what it means to care about the environment. While our wheelhouse is in investments that focus on having a positive impact in the world, we are also a team of people who live our personal lives congruent with our professional ones. This week we’ll feature a series of blog posts dedicated to Earth Week.
