Ethical Investments - Can a socially responsible approach to investing really make you money
Ethical funds are increasingly popular with 56 per cent of UK investors having upped their allocations to them over the past five years, according to fund house Schroders. Such funds are increasingly popular, with younger generations placing greater emphasis on a socially responsible approach to investing, but also big investors – such as pension funds - seeking to back an ethical stance.
But can you really achieve healthy returns by investing with an ethical slant?
At our February breakfast, we'll discuss the followings:
- What is Ethical Investing and Do Ethical Investments offer good returns?
- How ethical investment fund can be diversified sufficiently to reduce risk to investors
- The broader societal impact investment in ethical funds can have in supporting SMEs in emerging market areas
We'll be joined by Dr Wendy Wu, Incubator Manager at Edinburgh Napier's Bright Red Triangle, a hub for innovation and enterprise practice at Edinburgh Napier University, and Craig Leslie, Client Senior Manager at Brown Shipley.
