Ethical & Sustainable Investing

Ethical and sustainable investment can be seen as a ‘nice-to-have’ but not an essential part of a portfolio. In our research, we look to raise awareness about the fundamental importance of ethical investment and increase familiarity with concepts and phrases such as ‘sustainable investment’, ‘Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance’ (ESG). We also consider the various approaches used for investing ethically.

In addition to raising awareness, we seek to counter the arguments concerning ‘the price of conscience’ by exploring the inherent benefits ethical investment brings revealed through the interplay of reduced risk and competitive advantage.
