A socially responsible investor is someone who takes ethical, social and environmental considerations in its investment decisions. Without compromising the profitability of the investment, the responsible investor seeks to create long-term value, supporting businesses that can bring benefits to society. Although institutional investors are the most active in this type of investments, based on the interest shown by millennials, the investment opportunities in the segment could very well lead to wealth transfers of over 4% of the world’s GDP by mid-century.
