Invest for your financial future.
Helping you drive change.
What if your investments made sense ethically as well as financially? Investing with P1 gives you the opportunity to make financial choices that help to make the world cleaner, greener and more socially equitable – without sacrificing the chance to generate financial returns.
Because financial ambition shouldn’t cost the Earth.
Money doesn’t grow on trees. It shouldn’t fund their destruction either.
Many people have money invested in unethical businesses – without even knowing. If you have any sort of savings account or pension fund, you may be one of them. That means you could be financing everything from weapons manufacturers to human rights violators; or places where exploitative contracts and discrimination abound. But when you become more aware of your investments, you can make positive choices that drive a better future for everyone – without losing the chance to generate financial returns.
Does it make financial sense?
There’s a growing clamour for ethical investment. That’s a not a micro-trend or a fad, but the beginning of a sea-change in the status quo that we believe will have a lasting impact on the way investment is made and businesses run. Of course, a big part of any investment is the opportunity to generate a financial return. As always the value of your investments is not guaranteed and can fall as well as rise, so you may get back less than you originally invested. We believe that the global drive towards environmental stewardship and social awareness will help to generate returns for investors. Past performance however is not an accurate guide to future returns.
What sort of investor are you?
Whether you are a cautious investor or want the opportunity for higher returns, you can find the right option for your financial ambitions with our tiered range of risk-rated ethical investment portfolios. Alternatively, we can meet you in person with your financial adviser to create a bespoke ethical portfolio if there are certain investments or sectors that you wish to target or avoid.
When we say ethical, we mean ethical
Green. Eco-friendly. Sustainable. They have become marketing terms. That’s why we insist on meticulous due diligence on the funds that enter our portfolios. We look to meet the fund managers we work with in person. And we are one of the only investment managers in the UK that has an external ethical oversight committee to guide our ethical policies – made up of experts in the fields of governance, environment and society – so we cover all aspects of ethical investment. No greenwashing here.
