Values-based investing

Sustainable investing pays off for you, your community and the generations to come.

Sustainability

Sustainable investing is good for the world, and it is good for you, too.

CWM is sought-after by investors who want to do the right thing with their money, but also want to follow sound investment principles and see strong returns, too.

Sustainable investors are the growing number of people who prioritise environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors when making their investment decisions. This can include targeting companies with high sustainability scores based on the following variables:

  • Greenhouse gas emissions
  • Land use and biodiversity
  • Toxic spills and releases
  • Operational waste and waste management

This also enables you to avoid investing in companies that generate revenue from or are associated with factory farming, weapons, tobacco, child labour, alcohol, gambling and pornography.

This is simply about investing according to your values. If you’re passionate about climate change, the environment, social issues or corporate responsibility, you have the ability to put your money where your mouth is.

And when you develop a sustainable investment strategy with CWM, you get to pursue your sustainability and wealth goals simultaneously.

While future generations will thank you for it, applying a values-based investment strategy also pays off. As economies and markets took significant hits through the COVID-19 pandemic, sustainable investments showed great resilience and in fact performed better through the global crisis.

As a result, we’re seeing exponential growth in this area. The sustainable investment market has more than tripled from $5.7 billion to $19.9 billion over the past two years and is predicted to hit $100 billion by 2025, according to Responsible Investment Association Australasia.

Ultimately, as more people invest according to ESG factors, companies are held to a higher account and will be influenced to ‘do good’ in business. And this creates a better future for everyone.
