The future of finance and investments leans toward sustainability and social responsibility. ESG investing, or Environmental, Social, and Governance-focused investing, aims to facilitate the marriage between corporations and a more sustainable, equitable world.
Otherwise known as Responsible Investing, ESG assets under management (AUM) made up one third of the total US-domiciled AUM by the end of 2020, and this measure is only growing. Rising in parallel, cryptocurrencies were the best performing asset class of the last decade and are strongly aligned with the ESG mission of sustainability, social-benefit, and community governance efforts.
Through the decentralized nature of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology, the crypto ecosystem is taking cutting edge approaches to sustainability in order to achieve its mission of unifying the global economy with universally sovereign financial access. Together, ESG strategies and cryptocurrencies are equipped to build a more sustainable and equitable world.
Crafted by Portfolio Manager Blake Richman, Partner Marketing Manager Liam McDonald, and Blockchain Analyst Nathan Frankovitz, the Sarson Funds Crypto & ESG White Paper presents an in-depth overview of ESG, its impact on investment decisions, and its applicability in the cryptocurrency and digital asset market. Our aim is to provide the financial advising community with a credible source to better understand the power of crypto from both Wall Street and crypto experts.
