The world has changed and continues to do so at an alarming pace. We are pleased to say that there is a growing appreciation that investing need not be just about maximising profit and can, with a responsible and intelligent process, also be about ensuring a fair trade off between return, risk and the impact any of our investment decisions may have on either the environment or society as a whole.This in its self is becoming more and more of an issue and is increasingly significant and, in some cases, material to our investors values.
If you have any specific concerns, ethical requirements or sectors you would not want your capital to be invested in, such as companies which may damage the environment or that engage in areas such as medical testing on animals, then our Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) service aims to cater for your needs and values in this regard.
This service screens and omits inclusion of those companies within your portfolio, assuring that your capital can be made to work hard but within your own principles and values.
