The Vegan Growth Portfolio

Based on our years of experience with investors seeking socially responsible investing alternatives, there’s a good chance you’ve come to our website with a little bit of frustration after being told by financial planners and other investment advisers that, to invest effectively, you’ll have to either give up your beliefs or give up the idea that you’ll ever make a good return investing responsibly. If that’s the case, then we should be a refreshing alternative for you since neither of those concepts are accurate.

Our social screening history dates back to 1990 as a broker with A.G. Edwards and Sons in Nashua, NH where we were active in giving lifetime homes to dogs in need of rescue. During this time Brad Pappas was the first investment professional in the U.S. to create the concept of “Cruelty Free Investing” by avoiding investments associated with animal cruelty. Since then he has made a lifelong commitment to Cruelty Free Investing and expanding the concept to Vegan investing screens.

Rocky Mountain Humane Investing, Corp. was founded by Brad Pappas in 1995 as the first and only investment adviser in the US that focuses exclusively on the needs of the humane/environmentally and Vegan oriented investor, also commonly referred to as socially responsible, eco-friendly, sustainable or green investors.

Currently, we screen and eliminate the following industries:

  • Animal Testing (including Biotechnology and Pharmaceuticals)
  • Animals as Entertainment
  • Companies with significant environmental issues
  • Factory Farming
  • Weapons
  • Extractive Industries (mining)
  • Tobacco
