Attorney General Bonta Expresses Support for SEC Proposal to Increase Transparency and Accountability of Funds Claiming to Prioritize ESG Factors

Posted by: thepinetree on 08/16/2022 09:36 PM
Oakland, CA...California Attorney General Rob Bonta today urged the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to finalize rules that would require investment companies and advisors to disclose information about how they use environmental, social, and governance criteria in investment products labeled as “ESG.” While a number of investment companies now offer funds that purport to prioritize ESG factors, evidence has emerged that many of these funds give little consideration to these factors, and instead tout ESG merely as a way to lure investors who want to invest according to their values. In the letter, Attorney General Bonta joins a multistate coalition in arguing that the SEC’s proposal would increase transparency and accountability in this growing investment sector, benefiting both investors and those companies who are actually committed to ESG values.

Another Happy Buyer & Seller from Better Altitude Properties

Posted by: thepinetree on 08/16/2022 11:48 AM
Arnold, CA...It may seem complicated when there are multiple owners on a property. These owners, three brothers contacted us when it was time to sell the cabin that they had grown up with. The cabin needed a new lease on life and they had their doubts that it would sell in its present as-is condition. We placed it on the Market and within days we had 5 offers. The Buyers, Two brothers, and a son had been looking for their own cabin in the mountains. Being in the trades they had the ability and desire to build their own sweat equity and dreams of making memories in the mountains. It is always amazing to be involved with passing the torch of ownership.

Your Sender's Market Ace Hardware August Red Hot Buys

Posted by: thepinetree on 08/14/2022 08:41 AM
Valley Springs & Mountain Ranch, CA...In 1950, we started out as a family operation with Erich’s father and mother, August and Freida Sender, in a century-old adobe building. The upstairs was home to the Sender family, and the first floor included groceries, a meat market, a bar, and a small eating place called Opa’s Smokehouse. On Christmas morning in 1968, the old store was destroyed by fire. But in June 1969, Sender’s Market, Inc. was opened. Since that time, there have been many changes, including remodeling, expansion, and the addition of many employees. That’s also when we added the truss plant and purchased Sender’s Market Ace Hardware in Valley Springs. Today, we’re still family owned and still working hard to stock everything from pantry essentials to power tools. Whether you’ve got questions about the perfect cut of meat or the right kind of paint, our helpful, knowledgeable staff has you covered. Click on images below for larger versions.
