United Kingdom (PRWEB) July 24, 2013
Socially responsible investment is on the rise, particularly among a generation of younger investors who are as eager to make a difference as they are to make a buck—and according to the investment pros at Avacade, this trend is one that ultimately benefits everyone. To illustrate its point, the company highlights a recent report, posted to Millionaire Corner. The report details some of the socially responsible investment trends that are currently shaping the world and influencing investor decision-making. Avacade has issued a new statement to the press, commenting on the article and on the importance of socially responsible investment more generally.
Avacade is a company that stands at the vanguard of the socially responsible investment movement. The company offers its investors the chance to invest in green endeavors—specifically, timber—across the world. In doing so, investors not only make a difference in developing economies, but they also support green timber practices—all while investing in rapidly-appreciating commodities.
“The investment trends highlighted in this report show some key differences in attitude toward socially responsible investing, depending on, amongst other factors, age and net worth,” notes Avacade, in the company’s new press statement. “What cannot be disputed is the growing trend, particularly amongst the younger generations, to invest socially and responsibly.”
Continues the company press statement, “Part of investing responsibly can be investments into timber which can make a positive contribution to CO2 reduction. At Avacade we see first-hand the high level of interest into ethical and socially responsible investments, the majority of our clients are under the age of 50 and looking to invest into longer term products that benefit future generations.”
As for the Millionaire Corner report, it notes that younger generations are keener on socially responsible investment than older ones. “When it comes to factors that influence an investor’s investment selection, social responsibility is significantly more of a priority for Millennial investors than it is for previous generations,” the report notes.
In fact, 49 percent of Millennials with more than $1 million net worth tell Millionaire Corner that social responsibility is a factor that they consider when choosing new investments. However, the interest that investors show in investing responsibly decreases with age. “It is an investment factor for 43 percent of Gen Xers, 34 percent of Baby Boomers (a surprise, as the annual Earth Day observance was created on their watch), and 27 percent of seniors,” the article notes.
Socially responsible investing is an even higher priority for those with less than $1 million new worth. “Fifty-three percent of non-Millionaire Millennials make socially responsible investments a priority, as do 42 percent of Gen Xers, 41 percent of Baby Boomers and 39 percent of seniors,” the article states.
The same report finds that socially responsible investing makes up an estimated $3.07 trillion out of $25.2 trillion in the U.S. investment marketplace.
