Chicago, IL, June 14, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- US SIF advocates for sustainable investment practices, focusing especially on environmental, social, and political concerns, and was founded in 1984 by Joan Bavaria. Their first conference, held in 2011, attracted speakers such as former Vice President Al Gore and U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and set the tone by selecting the Fairmont Hotel in D.C. as its venue for its sustainable and green business practices. Since then the conference has taken place every year and draws over 400 attendees to discuss topics ranging from how responsible investing can alleviate symptoms of the Great Recession to financing alternatives to fossil fuels.
Monday’s programs were only open to US SIF members, but the second two days of the conference (May 24th and 25th) were open to the public.
Liz Sessler, Client Advocate for ImpactUs[j4] , moderated the panel which also featured Khurram Sikande of Enclude Solutions[j5] . “A lot of people have a genuine desire to have their investments make a social impact, but find the process opaque,” Newbery said of the discussion. "The question is how can we make impact investing more accessible. Crowdfunding is part of the answer."
AHP crowdfunds the purchase of distressed mortgages purchased at significant discounts, and then offers sustainable solutions to struggling families. AHP has assisted over 600 families to stay in their homes, as well as put over 500 vacant homes back into service. In June, AHP will open up a Regulation A+ offering which is open to both accredited and non-accredited investors. The low minimum investment of $100 is designed to be accessible to a wide range of potential investors.
