Align your Investments
with your Values

Through our ESG portfolios, Integrē Wealth Management offers our clients the option to invest in companies that demonstrate high standards of responsibility toward society and the environment. The term “ESG” refers to the environmental, social and corporate governance factors that we consider when selecting positions for the portfolio. We combine rigorous financial analysis with an equally rigorous analysis of the ESG characteristics of a company. This “double diligence” performs two functions: it allows our socially conscious clients to align their investments with their personal values, and it allows us to identify companies with ESG characteristics that will enhance their financial value and sustainability over time.

The expertise of the Integrē team confers a unique advantage in creating this type of portfolio. Our ESG advisor, Jessica Higgins, holds Masters Degrees in both sustainable development and environmental policy. Her previous work on environmental and social issues gives her important insight into the ESG issues that matter to our clients. You can read more about Jessica here.

Our selection process for the ESG portfolios is both quantitative and qualitative. We employ positive and negative screens, selecting companies that perform well on ESG criteria while excluding those that perform poorly. We analyze data from more than 300 sources, including broad reporting mechanisms like the Global Reporting Initiative as well as more specialized sources like the Forest Stewardship Council and the Human Rights Campaign.

The practice of aligning investments with values is becoming increasingly popular, and we are pleased to provide this option for our clients.
