It seems that the times are calling for a global shake-up in how we invest. A vicious pursuit of monetary profits only is gradually losing relevance. Profit and interest are human-made notions that can only sustain themselves if they improve our livelihoods.

Investors are increasingly aware and active. As market participants’ mindsets shift, the power of investment decisions to direct entire populations’ faith is evident. Younger generations, raised with a greater social and environmental consciousness, are gaining weight in investment decision-making[1]. As evidenced by the chart below, published in a recent The Economist article, younger generations are still due to…


Sometimes it seems that it is getting challenging to coexist, as a vortex of human-made complexity that is beyond anything essential absorbs us. Crimes against our fellows are no longer justified by turf wars, at least not the physical ones, but by ignorance and fear. It’s hard to put in perspective what’s happening with a heightened state of stress affecting all of us.

Sometimes I feel like some weird bump. I may feel I could take on the world, but is this what everyone else is feeling too? And if that was the case, we end up suppressing each other…

We’re not doing enough when we typecast our citizens simplistically. When we demonize those who have reached a certain level of wealth, criticize others’ consumption…


It’s exhilarating to understand that you just need to look within to connect to true peace. I’m not sure why that knowledge keeps slipping me and driving me to forget that simplicity is all there is to know. We are the ones trying to complicate matters for the sake of challenge, forgetting that only going simple can be the most challenging and rewarding way to go.

Living is not supposed to be easy or hard, just meant to be. To be shaped once we discover how to do so. When everything aligns, all things flow, it is not unique nor…


It is undeniable that humanity has achieved a great feat in advancing to a more interconnected society in just the past decades. The current communication-driven era, with instant access, but at the same time increasingly responsible, or at least aware, human beings, shapes how we interact in the world and drive our economies[1].
