Who is Andrea McNaughton?
Despite being 53 years old and regularly trying to educate herself, she still considers herself a neophyte investor. Andrea no longer relies on the advice of financial advisors (she feels that financial advisors have put their own interests ahead of hers). Podcasts and books are her go-to tools to learn about investing. She tends to be conservative with her investments (and liberal with her politics). In her investments she looks for stability and a long-term return. More recently, she's added do good to the qualities she looks for when investing her money.

Andrea on Wunder Capital.
What about Wunder Capital and our offering made you invest?
I learned about Wunder Capital on the Slate Money Podcast. I was looking to diversify my investments a bit more and liked what I read in the Wunder Capital prospectus.
As an investor, how important is creating impact with your investment (specifically within the environmental sector)?
As I get older, very important. I don’t have many ways I can personally combat climate change and its ostrich-with-head-in-the-sand skeptics, so investing in alternative energy gratifies an itch in some small way.
If given two potential investments, with similar risk, and similar returns would you prefer the solar investment, and why?
I have to credit my German mother here. She was an early champion of solar energy back in the ‘70’s and has spent much of her life looking for ways to promote its use. By preferring solar, I honor her.
Have you invested in any other alternative investing platforms?
No, this is my leap into something new. So far, so good.
How did you hear about Wunder Capital?
By listening religiously to Felix Salmon, the smartest guy in podcast-land.
Wunder Capital is helping to accelerate the proliferation of solar by financing the commercial solar revolution. Wunder also offers investors a great way to invest in the future of energy. Learn more about Wunder by visiting WunderCapital.com.
