Stock Talk - Ep 60 - Millennials and sustainable investing

 
 

In this episode, Aman shares some observations on how the financial services industry are targeting Millennials with sustainable investing products, even though the track records of these type of products are not the greatest. The industry's response is they are just giving what people want. Unfortunately it might not be in the investors best interest. Aman also shares his personal story of how his robo adviser tried to upsell him into adding a sustainable investment component to his portfolio. In the end even though an investment product may be compatible from a personal values perspective, it is still important to do your own research to determine if the investment is truly consistent with your investment plan and ideology.
