Welcome to another episode of “YourStake, Your Story,” a podcast dedicated to telling the stories of financial advisors who lead with socially responsible and values-based investing. In this episode, Gabe Rissman talks with Meghan Lape-Lefevre, AFC®, CFP®, and EA® of Conscious Impact Financial. Meghan founded her practice in 2020 while in Germany and has since moved to Colorado where she uses values-based investing to align her clients' beliefs with their investments.
In this episode, Meghan and Gabe talk about:
- How her clients are passionate about what they invest in and how values-based investing allows for positive returns and impact.
- How information is power when it comes to investing, and how finance needs to separate from using high technical jargon to make investing seem accessible to all.
- Why ESG isn’t the best way to describe this trend in values-based investing, and why we ought to consider socially responsible investing instead.
- How mathematics brought her to her path as a Financial Planner, and her ideas on how values-based investing is going to be the next era in investing
