Choose to invest in green and ethical funds

Money is powerful and we can use it to shape the companies and businesses that do well in today’s society. We can influence our economies every day with what we buy and where we buy products from.  Whether it’s cutting back on meat and dairy, or switching to a green energy company, people are increasingly looking for ways to reduce their impact on the environment. However, most people are unaware that they are typically propping up the fossil fuels industry through their workplace pension.

According to a recent article in the Guardian, each year the average UK pension pot finances 23 tonnes of COemissions through the businesses it invests in – the equivalent of running nine family cars each year or burning 1,100 coal fires annually.  You can read the full article on the Guardian website: Do you want your pension to invest in companies harming the planet? | Pensions | The Guardian

Ethical investments are moving into the mainstream marketplace. Putting your money where your morals are is on the increase. When you choose to invest in green and ethical funds, there is a choice of funds that can be used to fit your individual requirements. The majority of families that we deal with use our portfolios which have worked well. The risk of these funds changes depending on the risk each individual wishes to take and the funds are monitored on a 6-monthly basis. These portfolios can be used for ISAs, onshore and offshore bonds and pensions.

Our service is very focused on the individual so we can set up bespoke investment solutions to suit you. We are a member of the Ethical Investment Association which means we’re committed to increasing access to green and ethical investment advice.
