Sustainable Investing: The Most Opportune Route For Women With Kiley Miller


Women are great candidates for sustainable investing. This approach to long-term trends and themes falls in line with how women inherently see the world. Women naturally tend to stay more disciplined and trade less, creating better long-term planning abilities.


So does that end the debate and honor women as better investors?


In this episode, Kiley Miller, the director of ESG Solutions at Envestnet, explains the ins and outs of sustainable female investing and the benefits to their overall portfolio. Kiley unpacks some long-term trends, such as climate change, developments in renewable energy, and regenerative agriculture, while detailing how women are more likely to play the waiting game to achieve results in these areas.


Kiley Discusses:
• Why women are great candidates for sustainable investing
• How sustainable investing practices align with the way women perceive the world
• What you should know about personalization
• The truth about emotions when it comes to investing
• And more!
