An introduction to Fund EcoMarket

water-sample

Fund EcoMarket offers information about investments that take ethical, social and environmental issues seriously.

Fund EcoMarket is a ‘whole of market’ tool that lists all onshore, regulated, retail, screened and themed SRI funds – plus a few carefully selected additional options.

We are passionate about helping people to understand this important area – which is why this site is free for everyone to use.  This is made possible however thanks to our supporters and sponsors – the companies whose logos are shown on Fund EcoMarket.

We believe that enabling people to find investment options that suit their personal values, aims and opinions is an essential part of the financial advice and decision making process.

Fund EcoMarket is our contribution towards helping this to happen by helping users to do the following:

1. View a comprehensive list of all regulated, retail, onshore sustainable, responsible and ethical funds – complete with information about their sustainable, responsible and ethical strategies and processes.

2.  Identify your / your client’s ‘best fit’ style of sustainable, responsible or ethical investment styles (‘SRI Style’) via the SRI StyleFinder fact find Questionnaire 

3. Find options with similar core ‘ethical/SRI’ strategies by selecting the ‘SRI Styles’ filter option.

4. Search SRI/ethical options via the ‘name, product and investment type’ filter fields – if you are looking for a particular fund.

5. Search for particular key SRI characteristics using our  ‘SRI Policy’ and ‘SRI Features’  and ‘Corporate SRI Activity’ filter options.

6. Read about fund specific SRI / ethical fund strategy information – via the ‘More Info’ button.  This text is supplied by fund managers and includes links to the relevant areas of fund management company websites.

7. Record your findings and generate reports for your audit trail. (Print and pdf options are available for the fact find questionnaire and the SRI fund finder tool.)
