Sustainable, Responsible and Impact Investing
Bond&Devick has been helping clients with SRI (Sustainable, Responsible and Impact) investing for decades. Green Investing has become "popular" in recent year and while we appreciate the visibility, we have been diving deep for more than 25 years which makes our firm a leader for SRI Investing in the Minneapolis - St. Paul area.
We believe investing in a sustainable and responsible manner makes sense from a financial point of view. Many of our clients are interested in aligning their values with their investments, but hesitate because they believe in doing so they need to accept lower returns. We feel the impact of sustainability factors when choosing an investment can help us potentially increase financial performance by focusing on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues.

Or to make an appointment with either RJ or Rob, please contact Chris Gaffron at email@example.com to set up a time.
