Good Money Week: what does being a sustainable and responsible investor mean in 2020?
By Sue Whitbread. IFA Magazine
This week is Good Money Week, the initiative which aims to help people to find sustainable and ethical options for banking, pensions, savings and investments. Delyth Richards, Head of the Client Solutions Group at Kleinwort Hambros, considers what being a sustainable and responsible investor means in the current climate, and beyond.
Delyth Richards comments: “The Coronavirus pandemic has accelerated demand for responsible approaches to doing business. Clients and advisers are unified by a common goal in finding responsible ways to safeguard their financial wellbeing, in alignment with addressing societal challenges. This alignment is creating a shared purpose which is essential to a well-functioning economy and for society as a whole.
“Good Money Week is a time for people to stop and think about how they can spend, save, bank and invest in ethical, sustainable and responsible ways. For many businesses, it is an opportunity to consider what it means to be responsible, from the services and products they offer consumers, to the way they support their own people and communities."
