Reviews

Demand is booming for mutual funds that specialize in ethical investing--helping you put your money into companies that support the environment, workers, and society in general. But some apparently "green" funds are merely "green-washed," only pretending to invest ethically. How can you find investments that truly reflect your principles? This excellent book will tell you. You'll learn the nuances of social investing as well as discover your likely investment returns. Highly recommended! --Jane Bryant Quinn, Author, How to Make Your Money Last: The Indispensable Retirement Guide

Sustainable investing is a complex subject. The investing industry, as it always does, has made it even more so. Here is a book that spells out what the data and peer-reviewed academic evidence tell us. The truth is, we simply don't know whether ESG portfolios will outperform or underperform mainstream portfolios in the future. Ultimately, though, there are far more important things at stake. Adams and Swedroe have produced the go-to guide for anyone who wants to understand the issues involved. --Robin Powell, Editor, The Evidence-Based Investor

Larry Swedroe and his co-author Sam Adams provide an insightful guide for investors interested in the hottest investment today; namely sustainable investing (SI). Their book is not simply a "this is a wonderful opportunity," but a sober look at the reality that the plethora of SI funds are not particularly comparable and, in fact, the rating services provide radically different ratings for the same funds. Having set the framework and following up with details on the nature and attributes of the SI market, they conclude with a comprehensive guide on "How to Invest Sustainably" (and the warning that it will take work). If this is an investment universe you have an interest in entering, Your Essential Guide To Sustainable Investing is indeed an essential book to own and read.--Harold Evensky, Founder Evensky and Katz
