Some investors would like to own ‘broadly ethical’ portfolios which avoid certain companies and industries while supporting others.
However, the meaning of the word ‘ethics’ varies from person to person and there are many ethical funds which have differing priorities and methodologies. It is important, at the outset, to establish which areas are of most importance to you.
‘Ethical Investment’ has many names including ‘green investment’, ‘socially responsible investment’, and ‘sustainable investment’. It addresses social, ethical and environmental issues (SEE) as well as considering pure investment ones. It is increasingly concerned with effective corporate governance.
