New investors are making money and supporting their favorite causes, such as Human Rights and Cancer, at the same time

According to recent CNN reports, ninety-three percent of millennials say, when it comes to investing for their futures, they distrust markets, lack investing knowledge and are less confident about investing.  Add to that, many in this group see their missions in life as something much greater – like changing the world.

But, there’s a new investing model that empowers Americans to make money and take a stand on community issues. Swell is a research company that creates “cause-driven” investment models that you can use to earn both a return for you and for your cause.  In fact Swell will give 20% of their revenue* to charity!  It’s called ‘cause investing’.

Socially minded financial experts Liam Monaghan and Dave Fanger are the brains behind Swell Investing’s cause platform. Dave along with Khanh T. Tran, President of Pacific Life Insurance Company sat down with me for an interview to share more details on this new trend in investing.
