This interesting SRI survey: First Affirmative Survey, shows how SRI has become entrenched in mainstream finance. Commenting on the survey’s results, Betsy Moszeter says “Having reached the point where one out of two financial professionals have offered SRI options to their clients, it is clear that responsible investment strategies are now a client expectation that advisors need to be equipped to provide.”
