Quintin Rayer explores clean money and why ethical and sustainable investing matters, the approaches used and how trustees can include it as part of meeting their fiduciary responsibilities.
Pension trustees and other asset owners can benefit from awareness of different approaches that can be tailored to individual objectives. Charities, in particular, are likely to appreciate guidance on different areas and investment approaches.Results of analyses are also presented that should give cause for thought to those who are tempted to assume that it is ‘obvious’ that ethical portfolios ‘must’ underperform the wider market.
