Hi all! After starting my first job and setting up my 401K, I'm feeling concerned about where that money is being invested and whether it might be having a harmful impact. I'm not sure I have a lot of transparency on where it's being directed to (it's currently in a kind of "blended fund" and I haven't had/taken the time yet to dig into this more). So, I'm wondering: has anyone thought much about this?
One initial consideration that comes to mind: The money gained from investing in this way could hopefully offer me more money to effectively donate later in life or additional career flexibility. This career flexibility could lead me to spend more time on impactful work. However, this would be later in life, possibly past the point when I'd be most likely to do my highest impact work. Also, the possibility of value drift reduces the expected value of both possibilities (though I'm not sure by how much).
