How important is sustainability for you?

More and more millennials who are starting to dive into the stock market find sustainability to be a very important part of investing. 

So, for investors who are socially or ecologically conscious, you might want to consider an ESG ETF.

But what exactly does that mean?

ESG stands for environmental, social, and corporate governance. 

For investors who are looking to invest in companies that make diversity, sustainability, etc., a priority, then ESG investing is for you.

But, hold on, do you know what an ETF is?

An ETF is an exchange-traded fund. 

It's basically a fund that owns a collection of third-party assets, such as stocks or bonds.

And since ETF's trade on an exchange, investors can buy them just like they would stocks of a single company.
