Your money has the power to do well by doing good. Impact investing is a strategy that targets positive, measurable social and environmental impact alongside financial returns. You can directly fund solutions that promote a more sustainable future by redirecting your investments to companies that align with your values while excluding those that don’t. Learn more.
While there is no universal definition, sustainable investing (or responsible investing) refers to an investment philosophy that considers environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria and can be grouped into the following two strategies:
- Socially Responsible Investing (SRI): Avoid harmful investments that do not align with your values (fossil fuels, for-profit prisons, civilian firearms, military weapons, etc.)
- ESG Investing: Integrating Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) factors into traditional investment processes to improve a portfolio’s long-term risk/return profile.
- Impact Investing: This investment approach goes beyond sustainable investing as the primary intent of this strategy is to generate measurable positive environmental and social impact. Learn more about how we measure impact.
All FLIT Invest accounts are in the custody of Apex Clearing Corporation and SIPC-protected up to $500,000, including $250,000 in cash balances. SIPC protects against losses resulting from the insolvency of a broker-dealer. The $500,000 amount is standard for investment companies.
In addition to SIPC protection, FLIT Invest monitors unusual activity across all accounts and systems to ensure the safety of your funds, data, and personal information. We encrypt all stored data with 256-bit encryption, the same level of security as at large financial institutions. We also use two-factor authentication (2FA) to secure all accounts further and validate our security posture with third-party penetration testing.
Historically, some of the best times to start investing have been periods of down markets, also known as bear markets. Why? Because currently, stocks are on sale, meaning you are getting a lower price when purchasing them.
While the average bear market lasts about 1.1 year, the average bull market (when stocks are going up) lasts about 3.9 years. Since it’s impossible to predict when the market will bottom, buying things on sale has proven to be a successful investment strategy.
