Sustainable and ethical investment and finance allows you to have a positive impact on the environment and society without sacrificing financial performance.
Good Money Week, which runs between October 8-14, raises awareness of sustainable, responsible and ethical finance – banking, pensions savings and investments – to help people make good money choices.
The number of people, especially baby-boomers and millennials, asking how climate change and other environmental, social and company governance (ESG) issues will affect their investments is growing. They hear about these issues in the news and look for informed advice on the impact of their investment.
‘Good Money’ is money that considers ESG issues as well as seeking a financial return. Some people in the City call it ‘Responsible Investment’ or ‘RI’ too.
The business benefits of ‘good money’!
- Reduces the investment risk associated with companies that have poor ESG records, e.g. Volkswagen, Tesco, Sports Direct
- Provides investment opportunities in emerging industries e.g. electric vehicles, UK-based textiles, cyber security, meat alternatives, etc.
- Provides investments which respect client values and concerns e.g. tobacco, animal testing, weapons, etc.
It’s your money. Ensure it ends up in the right hands.
It doesn’t cost extra to choose good banks, pensions, savings and investments. It is just a matter of choice – like where you buy your coffee or food.
