“Change occurs when we vote with our wallets…We are in a revolution right now when we can use our portfolios to express our values and actually impact the policies that corporations are making.”

Christopher Cordaro

With Facebook’s historic stock drop of 20% in one day, losing ~$120 billion in value – the most ever in any stock in one day – it’s a good idea to step back and talk about investing overall and why values matter.

Listen to Green Connections Radio host Joan Michelson’s fascinating conversation with investing master, Christopher Cordaro, Managing Partner and Chief Investment Officer of RegentAtlantic about how well socially-responsible investments perform relative to others and how to match your investment dollars to your values.

You’ll hear:

  • Why Tesla has a surprisingly low score as a values-driven investment.
  • The difference between socially-responsible investing and ESG investing (using environment, social and governance investment criteria).
  • The ROI, return on investment, of values-driven stocks vs. traditional stocks.
  • How we can change corporate behavior via our investments.
  • How women are better suited for leadership in today’s economy than men.
  • Tips for how to evaluate your investment portfolio or 401K.

         And more….

You’ll want to take notes to help you decide where to put your money.

You’ll probably also want to listen to Joan’s interviews with:

  • Patsy Doerr, Global Head of Corporate Responsibility, Sustainability and Inclusion at Thomson Reuters, leading their ESG Index unit, on the pressure for companies to release more information about their environmental and social impact and their governance practices – and how it helps more broadly.
  • Barbara Krumsiek former long-time CEO of Calvert Investment on socially-responsible investing and how to identify the right financial advisor.
  • Nancy Pfund, Managing Partner of DBL Investing, a values-based venture capital firm and rock star.
  • Michelle Singletary, personal finance columnist of the Washington Post, author on smart money strategies.

All of these and many more – plus Joan's Forbes and HuffPost blogs and other resources – are on, along with a lot more information about Green Connections Media, host Joan Michelson and how you can reach the eco-conscious and women’s markets with us.
