Fossil fuels are not only bad for our planet, the yare bad for our portfolios, too! During this forum, you will learn why investments with fossil fuel stocks consistently underperform investments without them. You will also learn how church endowment funds and individual investors can thoughtfully and strategically divest from fossil fuels (whether you are currently invested in stocks or in mutual funds).
Keynote speaker via video is Rev. Fletcher Harper, Executive Director of Green Faith. Bill McKibben will participate with a recorded video especially for the Forum. There will be a panel session with financial experts Brett Greenfield, Portfolio Manager for Aris Faith Based Fund, Henry May who successfully led the effort to divest at First Congregational Church, Old Lyme, CT, and Michael Winterfields, Independent Financial Advisor. An open discussion will follow.
