How our Ethical Fund helps you invest for good
Choosing your own investments is known as ‘freestyling’, which means making decisions about how your money is invested without intervention from us. This might be because you have ethical considerations that you would like to take into account.
Our Ethical Fund invests in organisations that comply with a range of ethical, sustainable, environmental and governance criteria. This is also known as ‘Environmental, Social and Governance’ criteria, or simply ‘ESG’ for short. By investing in our Ethical Fund you can be sure your money is invested in a way that matches your values and doesn’t invest in organisations whose operations have a harmful effect on the planet and our society.
