Why we like it: The UK ethical fund aims to provide long term growth by investing in a diversified portfolio of UK equity assets that meet Standard Life’s strict ethical criteria. Current areas of exclusion include alcohol, tobacco and companies deemed to cause environmental damage – the latter typically rules out most oil and mining stocks. Fund manager Lesley Duncan has an extensive track record in both UK equity and ethical investing, having taking over the reins of this fund in 2004.

Why we like it: Investing ethically often involves avoiding certain companies or sectors. These constraints mean striking a balance between investing ethically and delivering strong performance is no easy task. The fund manager Audrey Ryan is one of few fund managers who have handled the constraints of an ethical fund well over the long run.
