Your Money – Your Values
At 2ndVote Advisers (2VA) we believe that companies focused on shareholder returns are better for investors than companies focused on political activism or social agendas. Our investment strategy is consistent with the view of renowned economist Milton Freidman that a business’ first responsibility is to generate returns for its shareholders. We also believe that investors should be able to invest without offending their values.
Our products embrace those common-sense beliefs.
2VA strives to take the politics out of investing, invests in alignment with our investors’ personal values, and focuses on higher returns for our investors. We are not supportive of Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”), Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (“DE&I”) or similarly “fashionable” investment criteria that place ideological, social or political goals ahead of our investors’ financial interests. We neither invest nor vote the shares we hold to advance ESG, DE&I or similar agendas. We put performance ahead of ideology and won’t play politics with your money.
Unlike funds that use ESG, DE&I or similar investment criteria, 2VA does not require that a company be aligned with our values to be in our products. We only require that companies don’t oppose your values. The great majority of stocks in our portfolios score neutral on the issues involved. “Profits not politics” is the focus of our investment strategy.
At 2VA, our motto is: “Your Money – Your Values.”
Our goal is to invest in alignment with our investors’ personal values and to maximize their returns.
