Is Impact Investing Right For You?

You know that episode of Friends where Monica invests in the stock market and loses all her money? Yeah, not sure about you, but that was the closest thing we got to investing advice growing up.

So just in case you’re like us and know shockingly little about the stock market, we thought we’d give you a quick intro to investing. And since this is The Impact Job newsletter, after all, we’re specifically going to talk about the pros and cons of impact investing.

Don’t worry, this won’t take long.

Impact investing, or as the pros call it, socially responsible investing, is when you invest your money into companies that have a positive social impact. You aren’t only trying to turn a profit for yourself; you’re trying to use your money to create social change.

For example, investing in green energy companies as opposed to fossil fuel companies. Sounds like a no-brainer for us socially-minded do-gooders, right?

Here are the pros of impact investing:

  • You can make money and sleep well at night knowing you’re contributing to positive change.
  • You get to de-invest from companies that are harming people and the planet.
  • You’re supporting innovation in social impact entrepreneurship.

If you ask us, investing based on your values is a lot better than Monica’s stock-picking technique…

However, there are some downsides to impact investing, like the fact that some experts say that it yields lower financial returns (although other experts say this is changing). Impact investing can also be riskier and outcomes are harder to measure.

So is it right for you? Our advice is to do your own research, cause once again we are dangerously under-educated on the topic. Something we do know a lot about is social impact jobs, and we got those on tap. Scroll down to start applying for your next do-gooder job today so that you actually have some money to invest, ya feel?
