In the world of investments, ESG stands for Environmental, Social and Governance. These are criteria for a more ethical approach to investing, and therefore represent an opportunity for the investor to use their money to improve the world around us. Environmental aspects can include our relationship with the planet, social can refer to the way companies interact with communities, clients, customers and employees, while governance is in relation to the way a company is run, and can include matters such as executive pay, diversity and tax transparency.

Without doubt you can. Ethical investment is as much about where not to invest these days. If you feel strongly about certain issues, we can make sure your bespoke portfolio avoids those you don’t agree with. These could include companies engaged in tobacco manufacture, gambling, pornography and those that do little to foster good relations with local communities. Those that pollute, those that help controversial governments and those that continue to treat their employees badly will also be ignored. As always, feel free to talk with our team about the issues that are closest to your heart.
