Our goal is to educate Americans on the dangers of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG). This investment strategy supposedly aims to maximize long-term gains by analyzing companies across several categories not available on a spreadsheet, such as how companies are progressing toward “Net Zero” climate goals or how companies respond to social justice movements.
However, as ESG continues to infiltrate all aspects of American life, it is imperative that people are aware of the subjective and political nature of this rating system. With ESG, activist-investors often identify an agenda-driven problem and then solve it to align with their shade of politics.
Those in power are using hardworking Americans’ money to pursue their political interests with little concern for their fiduciary duty or the security of your retirement.
Our Money, Our Values is sponsored by the State Financial Officers Foundation, whose mission is to drive fiscally sound public policy by partnering with key stakeholders and educating Americans on the role of responsible financial management in a free market economy.
