Let’s talk money. Particularly, your money. Smart investing can provide lucrative opportunities and financial security for the future, but do you know where that money is going? Claire Smith, finance and investment professional, is helping conscious investors place their earnings in equally conscious companies. In 2017, she teamed up with two other vegan investment professionals to launch Beyond Advisors, part of the Beyond Investing vegan finance platform. The result is the world’s first vegan index of the U.S. stock market.

Beyond Investing’s US Vegan Climate Index allows Smith and her partners, Larry Abele and Lee Coates, to make ethical decisions when assessing U.S. large cap stocks and creating portfolios for their clients. The platform is meticulously guided by a set of no-budge standards to determine a company’s impact on both the animals and the environment. The screening is impressively thorough. Any company that partakes in or is associated with animal testing, animal products, animals in sport or entertainment, fossil fuel production, energy production from fossil fuel, military and defense, or “other environmental and human rights” issues is excluded from the index.
