ESG investing

We all know our investments affect the world around us. And we are becoming more interested than ever in the environmental, social and governance (ESG) standards of the companies we invest in.

Fund managers in the sustainable, ethical and socially responsible investing (SRI) space put these concerns at the heart of their investment processes. They look to generate returns and benefit society at the same time.

Find out more here on the merits of ESG investing and browse the funds looking to make a positive impact on society and the environment as well as your portfolio. 

This is not a personal recommendation to buy funds. Equally, if a fund you own is not on the list, we’re not recommending you sell it. You must ensure that any fund you choose to invest in is suitable for your own personal circumstances.

Our investment director Tom Stevenson sheds some light on what ESG investing is all about and the different ways investors can tap into the theme.​​​
