With a growing number of clients asking us about Ethical investment, we thought a brief update would be of wider interest.
Like many financial ideas, investing ‘ethically’ can quickly become overly complicated by industry language. It is not always well understood – investors may want their money to do good, or at least do no harm, but it is not always clear how to get started.
When we talk about ethical investing, what we really mean is putting your money into investments that are responsible and sustainable. Ethical investing originally meant using ‘sin screens’ to weed out potential investments in industries clients wanted to avoid.
