"Profitable Socially Responsible Investing? An Institutional Investor's Guide" is the book that came out of the author�s eight- year study, "Corporate Behavioral Screening: A New Perspective for Social Investors."
The book was written to demystify socially responsible investing it is based on Mr. Lane�s original research and ascertains that 1) when investors shun "sinful" securities, such as the stocks and bonds of tobacco companies or defense contractors, they tend to sacrifice risk-adjusted returns; however, (2) when they actively select "virtuous" companies, their portfolios' performance is unlikely to be impaired.
Step-by-step, the book provides the practical tools to define an individual's or institution's core values in a way that is useful in constructing a portfolio and, ultimately, in effecting positive change. It shows how to draft a mission-based investment policy that satisfies fiduciary obligations and to vote proxies most strategically, ensuring that voice is given to values.
