Today on the show, we’re taking a look at sustainable investing and asking the age-old question of whether investing ethically really need come at the expense of returns. Recent Fidelity research looking at company performance over 2020 suggests it doesn’t and that, in fact, the opposite may be true - companies that boast strong sustainability credentials have outperformed those that don’t this year.

Important information: The value of investments and the income from them, can go down as well as up, so you may get back less than you invest. Investors should note that the views expressed may no longer be current and may have already been acted upon. Overseas investments will be affected by movements in currency exchange rates.
