We have a long tradition and interest in ethical investments. Rather than putting together a model portfolio that aims to suit all ethical investors, we recognise that our clients have varied views and interests, so as always, we believe a bespoke approach is best. We want you to be comfortable with all aspects of our advice so please talk to us about the things that matter to you and we will tailor our advice accordingly. Our experience shows that our ethical portfolios can hold their own against non-screened holdings. The most crucial factor in any portfolio is you. We will involve you fully in the selection process so you have complete clarity about the risks, what returns you need to generate and when you will need to release capital to reach your goals. That also means you have complete control over what you invest in and can tailor your portfolio to suit your ethical and environmental beliefs.
