Redefining the term "investing"...
Today's investors have a different mindset... They scrutinize what they buy, what they eat and where they shop... Their investments are no different.
In short, they want to be more connected. If this describes you, then there is a better way to invest.
It's called Sustainable and Responsible Investing, it's about you, and it works. At Boardwalk Capital Management, we help individuals and institutions create intelligent portfolios of sustainable, responsible and impact investments, bringing best-of-class, cost effective solutions to investors of all sizes. Competitive financial returns with measurable social impact.
So, let's get started -- connecting your investments with your values.
As specialists in sustainable and responsible investing, Boardwalk helps you achieve your financial goals while building a legacy you can be proud of.
And we are a Certified B Corporation (or B Corp) which means that as a company we will balance profit with social impact, and will devote at least 20% of future profits to social impact investments.
Your values define your portfolio.
"For the first time, I'm proud of my investments.
And I like being a part of the solution."
"I like knowing that I'm investing in fair employers."
"Our bond investments finance schools, water and hospitals.
We are helping communities while earning a competitive interest rate."
"Climate change worries me.
At least I know my companies are reducing their carbon footprint."
Conventional thinking is wrong. So, challenge it!
Investors often believe that they must choose between profit and impact -- that they must ignore environmental and human factors in order to earn competitive returns. But research proves the opposite: Companies who care about the impact of their activities are better long term investments than those who do not.
It's also about risk management
Sustainable investors know what they own -- to suit their values, of course, but also to manage risk.
Risks from resource scarcity and climate change are real and growing. Regulations are in flux, creating new winners and losers. And with consumer attitudes shifting rapidly, poor corporate citizens risk being left in the cold.
These new risks require new approaches. And, sustainable investors are already using them.

Let's redefine what it means to invest.
The Sustainable Investor: In Pursuit of an Enlightened Investment Portfolio
July 27, 2014
"In business, sustainability means managing human and natural capital with the same vigor we apply to the management of financial capital. It means widening the scope of our awareness so we can understand fully the "true cost" of every choice we make."
Ray C. Anderson -- CEO, Interface, on defining "sustainability"
We can all read Ray Anderson's words above, appreciate his passion, and be inspired by his vision. But what if we aren't all visionaries like Ray? How can we create an authentic experience that reflects our passions in something as mundane as investing?
Keep in mind that the...

Indexing competitive returns and a better social footprint
May 31, 2014
Fund managers have a bad rap. (I know. I managed one for seven years and played the quarterly "performance derby" just like the rest of them.) While there are certainly mutual fund managers who can outperform their benchmarks, as an industry, high costs often mean the average fund doesn't distinguish itself. And even the best managers find it nearly impossible to outperform on a consistent basis.
Isn't this a self-fullfilling prophesy? I mean, how can a group of very smart people, competing within the same finite universe of investment opportunities, be better than average? It's just not mathematically possible for a...

Divestment: Investors put their money where their mouth is.
March 11, 2014
“The looming choice may be either stranding those assets or stranding the planet.”
OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurria
The drumbeat for "divestment" continues to grow louder. And Boardwalk Capital is seeing new client demand for fossil-free portfolios.
This movement isn't on the fringes any more...
The problem for investors is complex but straightforward. Current global fossil fuel reserves, if extracted and burnt, would release far more greenhouse gas emissions than is compatible with meeting the internationally agreed limit of no more than two degrees of global warming.
Defining risk. Aligning values: Investors around the world, from non-profits to universities, from individuals...
