Ritu Henningsen

Professional Focus and Services

I am a fee-only Investment Advisor Representative of First Affirmative Financial Network, LLC.  I specialize in helping investors integrate their personal values and priorities for the common good into their investment portfolio, while also helping them to achieve their financial goals.

In today's marketplace, directing investment capital toward businesses that offer solutions to some of the world's most pressing environmental and social challenges is not only possible, but has become increasingly common. I help clients invest in companies that contribute to a clean, healthy environment, treat people fairly, embrace equal opportunity, produce safe and useful products, and support efforts to promote a more peaceful world.

I take a double bottom line approach to serving each of my investor clients.  Portfolios are positioned to earn competitive financial returns while reflecting client priorities for society at large.  I work to integrate your best interests with the common good.  At the heart of the foundation, building a relationship built on trust and understanding is my priority.
