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.
