First Affirmative Financial Network
Colorado, United States
Service with Minor Environmental Footprint
First Affirmative, a 100% employee owned organization, is an Registered Investment Advisor with its principal place of business in Colorado Springs, Colorado. First Affirmative provides investment advice consistent with the philosophies of sustainable, responsible, impact (SRI) investing. First Affirmative began conducting business in 1989 and believes (as it has from the beginning) that the ways in which people save, spend and invest can dramatically influence both the fabric and consciousness of society. Investors can make a meaningful difference by consciously directing investment capital toward enterprises that contribute to a clean, healthy environment, that treat people fairly and embrace equal opportunity, that produce safe and useful products, and support efforts to promote world peace. Clients who choose to invest with First Affirmative make a conscious choice to put their money to work for a dual purpose — to provide for a secure retirement, for example, while working for a better, more socially just and environmentally sustainable future for all.
