Matching your money with your values ​​on social issues

Shannon Foreman spoke with KARE 11’s Karla Hult about how people can review their investments to make sure they align with their values.

MINNEAPOLIS — At a time when social issues command our attention, a local financial adviser urges everyone to make sure their money — or more specifically, their investments — align with their positions on the issues of the day.

Shannon Foreman spoke with KARE 11’s Karla Hult about how people can review their investments to make sure they align with their values.

“401(k)s and community and family foundations and trusts are some of the largest assets around the world. So we need to be able to start those conversations to be able to create those changes. If we don’t understand where our money is going, then we don’t understand that we continue to fund some of these issues that we might object to,” Foreman said.

Among the resources – or tools – recommended by Foreman to help you track your investments:

As You Sow (non-profit resource): A site that gives you the ability to see exactly where (and in what businesses) your money can be invested.

Foreman has also dedicated several podcast episodes to the topic of sustainable investing.
