Good Money Week

Climate change is having a devastating impact on our planet. We're all conscious of the pressing need to make ethical and sustainable lifestyle choices. Did you know that the way you invest your money can also play an important part in this? Join our Clean, Green and Kind Money for Beginners webinar and discover:

  • how you can start investing with as little as £50,
  • how to ensure your investments and savings are good for people, the planet and your pocket, and;
  • what sustainable fund managers do to help support a green and fair world.

We'd love to know your questions so we can answer them live on the day! Ask our finance and investment experts anything you like when you register below and we'll try to read it out on the day.

Why join this event?

Everyone is welcome. You don't have to be rich to be a sustainable investor - you can invest ethically with just £5. If you're an ethical consumer and support a clean, green and kind lifestyle, join us for this 60-minute webinar and make sure your money does good!
