Sustainable approaches to a profitable future

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: The information shown is not personal advice, if you are unsure of the suitability of an investment for your circumstances please contact us for personal advice. The value of investments can fall as well as rise, so you could get back less than you invest, especially over the short term. Past performance is not a guide to the future.

While you might expect putting limiting principles into investment practice to come at a cost, the opposite is true. Study after study has shown that businesses with ESG (environmental, social and governance) characteristics have outperformed their peers. So, what’s good for the environment and society could be good for your wealth too.
