Good Money Week 2016
Good Money Week kicks off today, highlighting the benefits of ethical and socially responsible investing, and Standard Life UK Ethical fund manager Lesley Duncan names five of her top stock picks that fit the criteria.
Research commissioned by SLI to mark the week has underlined the interest in ethical, with 35% wanting their savings provider to offer a fossil fuel-free option, up from 32% last year.
The survey also identified demand for a kitemark-style label to identify ethical financial products with 43% of Brits saying they would be more likely to go green if one existed.
