  • Ethical Investing: A Matter of Conscience - 20 December 2012
  • As information becomes more freely available, people in general appear to be becoming more aware of their individual responsibility in caring for our planet and fellow human beings by, among other things, reducing the negative impact we have on our natural resources. There are many daily choices we make as individuals that can have a negative or positive impact on us now, and affect future generations. Many investors take this into consideration when making investment decisions and choose to pursue the concept of ethical investing, also known as sustainable investing, socially conscious investing, socially responsible investing, and green investing.

  • Fiscal Cliff Concerns Subdue Markets - 13 December 2012
  • Following a climb of up to 81 points, driven by the Fed's announcement that it would keep interest low and extend its $85 billion a month bond-buying plan, the Dow Jones industrial average closed Wednesday at 13,245.45, being down 2.99 points. While investors responded well to the Fed's announcement, this was soon dampened by the reality that high-level "fiscal cliff" budget talks were continuing to take place in Washington, the outcome of which could impact significantly on Wall Street and the economy in general, should Congress and President Barack Obama be unable to reach a deal to prevent a series of spending cuts and sharp tax increases taking place in January. The Standard & Poor's 500 finished 0.64 points higher to close at 1,428.48, while the Nasdaq composite lost 8.49 points to close at 3,013.81.
