Investing in Ethical & Sustainable Portfolios
Investing in this way regularly involves active engagement as the fund manager encourages the companies that they invest in to adopt or improve social, governance and environmental practices and be conscious of their impact on the world.
Whilst negative screening has been the foundation for most ethical based investments, this additional level of positive screening that considers Environmental, social and Governance (ESG) factors, is less commonly known or adopted. Considerations are given to how an organisation approaches climate change, is it attuned to social diversity and human rights, and does it build and review its management structure in a transparent, honest manner. By blending both positive and negative screening, you can be assured that your investment solution meets your Ethical & Sustainable requirements.
