We're 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 sand hospitals.
We are helping communities while earning interest."
"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
Buy Green. Sell Stranded.
January 21, 2014
Buy Green. Sell Stranded. Even Wall Street is worried about climate change. By Tim McDonnell
One of the hard truths about climate change solutions—whether they’re solar panels, protective sea walls, or carbon-sucking golf balls—is that somebody has to pay for them. This week the United Nations’ climate chief, Christiana Figueres, told Climate Desk that global investment in clean-energy technologies needs to reach $1 trillion per year by 2030 (a little less than the gross domestic product of South Korea), roughly tripling where we’re at now, to keep global warming within the limit agreed on by international climate negotiators.
So when more than 500 investors who hold the strings...

US Stocks: Where are we now?
December 01, 2013
With the Dow Industrials and S&P500 making all time highs, and with the NASDAQ at a 13-year high, investors are right to question whether or not this bull market "still has legs". Perhaps it's not so surprising that Wall Street strategists and fund managers are divided on the outlook. Below, we summarize some thoughts from noteworthy commentators, while adding our own observations.
Keep this fact in mind:
It's the valution of the market that matters. Not the index level. Since 1900, the S&P 500 Index has been within 5% of its prior peak almost half the time.
We're always wondering if the...
