Ethical Funds | Aren’t these kind of investments for environmentalists?

Ethical funds were traditionally seen as the preserve of the environmental nutcase.  In fact, one of the founders of the first ethical fund in the UK, tells a story of people telling him that the fund should be called the Brazil fund because it was nuts!

The initial investors in ethical funds were motivated by religious or strong held ethical beliefs, but in more recent times, a wide range of investors have been attracted to ethical and sustainable funds.

Investors in general, are now starting to realise that they can affect change in society through their investments. By choosing ethical and sustainable funds, the investor is helping to mark these much-needed changes in society, while meeting their financial objectives. Doing Good, Avoiding Harm and Making Money.
