Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) investing has dramatically increased in popularity in recent years.
By focusing on companies, organisations and funds that seek to create a positive social and environmental impact through their activities, it answers a growing demand from investors to express their ethical views through their choice of investments. As well as offering the opportunity to do some good, it can also offer your clients the chance to capitalise on niche market opportunities.
While investors might have been cautious about ESG in the past, it now appears to be on the brink of significant growth as they set aside their reservations. ESG doesn’t need to be an all-or-nothing commitment: it can be combined with more traditional investment styles and can be tailored to suit the client’s own investing preferences.
We have developed a cost-effective portfolio for investors looking to invest in this space, through a series of funds that adhere to ESG principles.
If you would like to learn more about our ESG portfolio or other ESG investing opportunities for your clients, please get in touch.
The value of investments and income from them is not guaranteed, can fall, and you may get back less than you invested. Your capital is therefore always at risk. It should be noted that stock market investing is intended for the longer term.
