Rathbone Greenbank

Why Rathbone Greenbank Investments? Clients come to us because we share their values. We all believe that finance, if used sustainably, can be a very powerful force for good.

Our approach to investment includes traditional negative screening whilst supporting positive impact. We invest in companies that we feel are of a long term benefit to society, such education, healthcare, renewable energy, or companies who focus on environmental technology. We firmly believe companies engaged in these activities make good financial investments and create a beneficial long term return to shareholders.
