Socially Responsible Investing

Adding socially responsible investments to your portfolio

In truth, choosing a socially responsible investing (SRI) vehicle is not much different than considering any other mutual funds. SRI funds are now available in virtually every investment category (e.g. fixed income, equity, foreign, balanced) and in a number of management styles. A customized portfolio should be built based on your investment profile and time horizon. You could consider SRI component as an added benefit on top of those personal objectives. A win for you and a win for the environment.

We are pleased to report that your ScotiaMcLeod account offers you many SRI mutual funds from which to choose, including many recognizable names, like the original Ethical Funds. See the performance numbers....
