Episode Description

R. Paul Herman will discuss how investors pursue short-term financial gains, regardless of the human, environmental and social impact of the companies contained in their portfolio, which actually drive profit and business value. Some have adopted a socially responsible philosophy—excluding "bad" companies from their portfolio—which can be good for their conscience but not necessarily for their bottom line. In The HIP Investor (Wiley; April 2010; $29.95; 978-0-470-57512-3; Hardcover), R. Paul Herman—creator of the HIP approach (Human Impact + Profit) and a leading investment advisor—offers another solution: an approach that can realize the bigger profits that capitalists seek while building a better world that the socially conscious desire. This ground-breaking HIP approach is shown to have outperformed the financial returns of the S&P benchmark in both up and down markets.
