Like many Americans, chances are you had no idea. Currently, $390 billion of retirement funds are being invested in oil and gas. Unfortunately, many of the default options for retirement funds include companies that do not align with a sustainable future.
It is also very likely that your retirement funds are being invested in “default” options that generally consider your life expectancy, some amount of risk tolerance, and a target financial return as the only factors that will help you reach your retirement goals. Yet, there is more to consider!
