Compare ethical investment funds
Ethical funds are investments that have an investment strategy which excludes companies that have a negative effect on the environment and the people who live in it.
Ethical funds will usually have an investment strategy that divides between companies that use negative screening (i.e. those involved in the arms trade), and those that use positive screening (i.e. selecting companies in actively environmentally-friendly industries). Ethical funds are becoming more and more popular as investors become increasingly aware of issues such as climate change and human rights.
The main two reasons why investors look at ethical funds are:
- They want to be socially responsible with their investments
- They see significant growth potential in companies that are socially and ethically aware due to the increased public awareness
