Ethical Investment Funds
The traditional approach to ethical investment has been one of screening with some funds negatively screening companies to exclude those firms that operate in certain fields e.g. tobacco or gambling.
Positive screening works on a “best in class” approach with fund managers selecting companies that are making positive steps to demonstrate socially responsible practices with regards to how they operate.
In more recent times climate change has become a driver for new funds with company selections being made on attitudes to environmental issues.
In selecting a fund ensure you read the fund factsheet so you understand the fund objectives and the type of companies the fund manager selects.
Some funds are higher risk than others investing in future technologies while others are more conservative in their approach.
