January 25, 2023

Wednesday, February 15, 12-1pm ET

Guests: Sam & Sarah Adams, founders of Vert Asset Management

As part of Copper Leaf Financial’s focus on sustainable investing and planning we are very excited to invite you to our next virtual townhall on the topic of ESG (Environmental, Social, & Governance) investing!

Over the last five years ESG investing has transitioned from a niche approach practiced by a few pioneers to a mainstream investment strategy. Join us and we will review ESG investing’s rapid development and discuss some of the pressing issues we face today such as: 

  • Are companies actually becoming more sustainable as a result of ESG investing?
  • Do the recent political attacks on ESG have merit?
  • Is greenwashing really a problem?
  • What might the future hold?

This virtual townhall is hosted by Michael L. Thompson, CAP®, AIF®, AEP® of Copper Leaf Financial and features Sam & Sarah Adams, founders of Vert Asset Management and experts in the construction of sustainable investment portfolios.
