Today marks the end of Good Money Week, a week devoted to making sure money is being invested in ways that benefit society and the environment. With this in mind, we have launched the latest edition of our ethical and green investing guide.

There are many routes to investing ethically, but we focus on the renewable infrastructure sector and the well-established ethical investment sector, which includes long-running funds looked after by successful managers. Our new guide sheds light on what our top ethical investment ideas are, but what is the importance of matching moral beliefs with investment decisions?

A wider push

Investors’ desire to match moral beliefs with investment decisions has delivered positive returns for ethical funds in recent years. Indeed, investing in line with ethical values and objectives is now an integrated part of company analysis for a number of fund managers, with studies highlighting the positive link between environmental, social and governance issues and company performance. Investing ethically can also limit the effect of regulatory risks and company scandals – just consider Sports Direct and Volkswagen, where controversies have vastly impacted their share prices.

As for the renewable infrastructure sector – consisting of investment companies and trusts investing in infrastructure that focus on producing sustainable energy – the wider push to reduce our carbon footprint, focus on sustainability and produce a dynamic and multidimensional energy landscape has contributed to both its birth and growth in recent years.

Choosing ethical investments

We recognise that it’s not always easy to choose ethical investments, which is why we create an annual guide to ethical and green investing. The latest edition discusses how ethical investments work, as the process behind ethical fund management differs from conventional funds and varies on a fund-by-fund basis.

We also explore what to look for when choosing your own ethical investments, before giving you an overview of our top ideas. You can download the guide today to find out more.

Is this a sector you would like to find out more about?

As more and more people bring moral beliefs into their investment strategy, is this an area you would like to know more about? You can download the guide for more information today, but please do let us know if you would like further details. Call us on 020 7189 2400, request a call back or email best@bestinvest.co.uk and someone will be in touch.

The value of your investment can go down as well as up, and you can get back less than you originally invested.
