We devote a lot of time and energy into researching investments and helping you understand the impact of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues related to your choices.
Our advisors count on supportive organizations such as USSIF, The Forum for Sustainable and Responsible Investment, which promotes sustainable, responsible and impact investing. Similarly, our advisors partner with GMI Ratings, the leading independent company that “provides global research coverage of the environmental, social, governance and accounting-related risks affecting the performance of public companies. GMI Ratings is a signatory to the United Nations-backed Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).”
Although your advisor will select investments that they believe will result in a favorable return, we will always be consistent with the beliefs and ethical preferences you’ve shared with us.
It’s important to understand that socially responsible investing securities can be more volatile than other securities. Fingerlakes Wealth Management’s interpretation and application of its social and environmental standards are subjective and may evolve over time. There’s also a risk that information used by our firm to evaluate the social and environmental performance of issuers, industries, markets, sectors, and regions may not be readily available, complete, or accurate.
You can rest assured that we’re committed to understanding your goals, your needs, and what’s important to you. Once we have a clear idea of what you want, we make sure your financial assets align with your values.
