For decades, workers' capital stewards have invested wisely to provide a secure retirement for millions of people around the world. This money - our money - represents an enormous share of economic and capital market wealth. The 2008 financial crisis seriously threatened these trusted assets and drained away prosperity. In response, a growing number of investors moved toward responsible investment policies and strategies.
But what constitutes a responsible investment and how can it be undertaken in practice? The Responsible Investor Handbook is dedicated to aligning the long-term investment priorities of working people with capital stewards and the financial complex that manages their assets.
"...A terrific hands-on 'how-to' and 'what it is' book on responsible investment...[it is a] well-written, well-informed and very well-documented book." - James Hawley, Ph.D. Transamerica Professor of Business Policy and Strategy, School of Economics and Business Administration, Saint Mary's College of California
