Impact investing is hot and only getting hotter. From reducing the carbon footprint of your portfolio to fostering women’s empowerment through gender diversity ETFs, investors are using their investment dollars to impact social and environmental change.

Impact investing is profitable investing. More diverse companies perform better, according to findings by global management consulting firm McKinsey & Co.
