What: Progressive Asset Management Group (PAM Group), the SRI division of Financial West Group, is a nationwide network of financial advisers who work with clients who are interested in having their wealth and investments follow their values. Locally, this group includes the firm's Seacoast branch in Newmarket, which opened in 1996 and is run by locals Hunter Brownlie and Mike Smith.

The PAM Group’s local financial advisers provide clients with environmentally and socially responsible investment strategies that include stocks, bonds, mutual funds, portfolio management, retirement planning, education funding and more; all with an eye on great returns and matching an investor's values with their financial portfolio.

One area in which PAM Group strives to educate clients, and the public, is on divesting from companies profiting off climate change, and reinvesting money into companies committed to reducing its negative impact. Financial advisers offer opportunities to invest in clean energy generation, energy efficiency, energy storage, agriculture, green building and more as a way to transition to a more sustainable economy.
