Four Pillars of Wealth Management and Education

You Value the Environment.
Why aren't you investing that way?

We know that wealth brings influence.

How are you investing your influence?

  • More than being a conscientious consumer, are you investing in companies that actively influence the world you’d like to see?
  • Worse than that, are your investments directly supporting companies that are opposed to your values?

 

You need an expert in your corner who shares your values and has a plan to achieve your goals.

At Binbrook Finance, we understand your financial goals and can ensure they align with your values for environmental and social responsibility.

It’s Time To Invest Differently

Create a Long-Term Plan
Generational wealth will be impacted by the choices you make today. Without a plan, you are much more likely to fall short. Goals must be defined and managed. We help you clarify your goals, grow your wealth, and positively impact the environment using the Four Pillars of Wealth Management.

Coordinate Advisors
All of the financial professionals working for you need to be working together toward the same goal. To meet your financial goals, we will provide a clear plan for you to share with your financial team as necessary. As your personal CFO advisor we take care of the whole picture, keeping your high-level goals in mind, increasing the probability of your success.
Advance Your Values
It's time to invest differently. Disruptive changes in the world are inevitable. Making responsible investments not only feels good it's a profitable strategy for the future.
Use your wealth influence to make a difference with the environment and socially responsible decision makers. Match your dollars invested with your values.

"Having invested with Brett for most of my adult life and having followed him throughout his career, I am confident that I will never let anyone else handle my investments and securities. Brett has always been open, upfront, responsible, and most of all honest when it comes to letting me know about upcoming market changes/trends, how best not only to grow my wealth but also how to protect my gains in times of uncertainty. "
David Kilpatrick

"I first met Brett back in 2006, when I was looking for someone who I could trust with my severance and company released pension funds. Brett was recommended as a person who would listen and offer suggestions but at the end of the day comply with my wishes. Later, my husband transferred his portfolio to Brett to handle, as he was impressed with his investment capabilities. Brett has done a wonderful job of keeping our funds as safe as possible during the many rocky stock market rides and he is always researching opportunities for growth. We are very happy with his services and look forward to continuing our relationship."

Socially responsible investing (SRI) can make a difference in our lives, our society and our environment, without compromising on performance!

It is possible to invest in companies that respect your values and whose work helps to build a sustainable world for you and your family. SRI funds have to meet specific investment criteria that:

  • Take environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into consideration, as well as financial analysis.
  • Combine the best of both worlds: superior growth potential and positive social and environmental impact.

 

Contact Brett Harrington at Binbrook Finance to discuss SRI solutions for your financial goals, your retirement, your children’s studies and more. A perfect balance between your values and your financial goals, whatever your budget!
