Good Money Week: why ethical investment really does pay
By Samantha Downes, What Investment
This week is Good Money Week (29 September to 6 October). The campaign, which is in its 11th year promotes sustainable responsible and ethical investing.
The UK’s retail ethical investment industry launched in 1984 but statistics from the Investment Association show funds with ‘ethical’ mandates total just £16.7bn of total assets under management. This representing 1.3% of total industry assets, up slightly from 1.2% in 2017.
