Financial return meets positive impact.
Find out how your values and investment decisions can align with responsible investing options.
Being a credit union member means you already live your values. You take comfort knowing your actions have an impact on your community in meaningful ways. Responsible investing is another way to make a difference, giving you the opportunity to generate competitive returns while at the same time supporting positive environmental, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives.
Earn with Confidence
Responsible investments unite financial benefits with positive social and environmental outcomes. Transparency around ESG performance allows shareholders to see more than a company's current financial metrics and includes a company's environmental record, socially-responsible practices, and corporate governance.
In Canada, the responsible investment sector is rapidly growing and accounts for more than half of total Canadian assets under management.
