In 1995, Brad Pappas formed Rocky Mountain Humane Investing, Corp (RMHI), an independent Boulder investment advisory firm to cater to Vegan and Socially Responsible Investing. RMHI was the first investment adviser in the United States that focused exclusively on humane and environmentally screening as part of a socially responsible investing philosophy.
In Episode 7 of Top Trader Radio, Brad and host Charley Wright talk about the investment approach behind several strategies tracked on Collective2 including Optimized Partners I and The Vegan Growth Portfolio. Topics include trend following, what makes a market worthy of investment, and the common question of whether socially responsible investing means sacrificing performance.
Brad’s proprietary ranking and trading systems have been public on Collective2.com since 2013.
The technique that a manager employs is far more important than the investment selection universe. I figured the only way I could really prove it to people was to do it in real time in real life.
