ESG Investing

The ABCs of ESG Investing: why, how, when?

With over 15 years in the financial services industry working for U.S. Trust (Bank of America’s Private Bank) and as a Fee-Only financial planner I’ve fielded a lot of questions. My favorite is, “How do I know I’m doing the right thing with my money?”

I get it. Most of us weren’t taught about personal finance in school or at home. Now things are getting more complex. You have a high income and you want to make the most of it. You could spend all night Googling your questions, but really, how do you sift through all of that information to come up with the right strategy for you?

Building strategies for myself (and now for my clients) gives me the certainty I need to make crucial decisions about saving for retirement and college, improving my business, reducing our taxes, and knowing where and how to invest our money. 

The best part of my job is getting to know what my clients cherish, collaboratively building a solid financial plan that supports your best life, and seeing it put into place. It is truly an honor to walk with my clients on their financial journey.

What’s your big dream?

Let’s talk about how to get there.
