Socially Responsible Investing (SRI) invests money in a way that advances the values of the institution or investor, while achieving competitive or superior market returns. Scott Arnell, Founding Partner of Geneva Capital, tells TheStreet's Jill Malandrino SRI has been growing in double digit rates in Europe, anywhere between 11-52% in terms of assets under management in the last couple of years. The largest category is exclusion, or negative screening. The fastest growing category is impact investing. Arnell explains just because certain stocks are excluded, it does not mean performance is sub par, it is about selecting companies with the best management which many SRI stocks have.
