“If you want to align your in­vest­ments with your val­ues, one of the first ques­tions to ask is ‘What are those val­ues?’ ” says Priya Par­rish, chief in­vest­ment of­fi­cer at Im­pact Engine in Chicago. If one is­sue jumps to the top of your list, there’s noth­ing wrong with pick­ing a port­fo­lio cu­rated around that cause. The on­line in­vest­ment plat­forms New­day, Mo­tif, and Swell of­fer port­fo­lios themed by is­sue. Swell, for ex­am­ple, lets you choose groups of stocks fo­cused on green tech, clean wa­ter, zero waste, re­new­able en­ergy, healthy liv­ing, and dis­ease erad­i­ca­tion. Is gen­der equal­ity im­por­tant to you? Ellevest fo­cuses on com­pa­nies with women in lead­er­ship roles and on women-owned busi­nesses that pro­vide com­mu­nity ser­vices. New­day looks at a com­pany’s gen­der pay par­ity, parental leave poli­cies, and fe­male lead­er­ship stats be­fore giv­ing it a place in the port­fo­lio.
