Belonging to the family business Armstrong Private Wealth Management established 25 years ago, BlueSphere was founded to support our clients in making the world a better place, by aligning their investments with their values and beliefs.
Traditionally people invest for financial return only, perhaps unaware that there is an additional benefit to be had if they simply changed to impact investing.
This additional benefit? Helping to solve some of the worlds biggest problems.
How would you feel knowing that your money is not only being deployed to help you achieve your personal financial objectives, but by investing into positive impact investments, your money will help fund businesses that are making a positive impact on the planet?
In the end, when we ask ourselves the deeper question, what impact did we have with our lives? Knowing that you helped to leave the planet in a better place, is a pretty good answer.
What is Impact Investing?
With traditional investments, people may not realise the negative impacts the companies they are investing into are having on the planet. In fact many would be shocked.
Impact investing allows the investor to generate a return on their investment and at the same time, support the companies that are creating the solutions to some of the worlds biggest challenges.
You may already be an ethical investor but impact investing takes that one step further and turns ethics into action. Whilst ethical investments do not invest in certain areas such as tobacco, armaments, and oil companies, the investments that are left may still create a negative impact.
Impact investing also screens out those same industries, but actively includes the companies that are creating a positive impact on the planet. And that impact is measurable.
As a client of BlueSphere you can be safe in the knowledge that your money is not invested into industries that are destroying the planet, and each year, as well as the financial performance of your investments, we provide you with the actual impacts your money has made environmentally and socially.
For example how much renewable energy you have generated, how many people you have been able to treat, how many hours of school or university education you have provided, how much C02 emissions you have avoided and many more areas of positive impact.
Investing has never felt so good.
“To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived – that is to have succeeded”
