How it works

sustainability-bubble-smallFund EcoMarket is a unique free to use, fund manager sponsored information tool that helps you understand what the many different ‘sustainable, responsible and ethical investment’ (SRI) options  different from other funds.

Fund EcoMarket’s focus is entirely on the ‘ethical’ aspects of  investments.

We focus on this area because quality information of this kind is hard to find elsewhere and even harder to compare… and because we are passionate about helping people to understand this  diverse range and hugely important investment options!

 You can use this tool to:

  • Research funds by name
  • Find funds with similar ‘ethical/SRI’ strategies using the ‘SRI Styles’ filter classifications or ‘labels’ (this is useful if you know you client’s preferred SRI Style/s)
  • Find funds’ with specific negative and positive screens and/or thematic approaches using the ‘SRI Policies’ filter
  • Find out about how funds put their strategies into practice (and other related differentiators) with the help of the ‘SRI Features’ filter
  • Find out about related (non fund specific) activity goes on behind the scenes at some leading SRI/ESG fund managers – with the help of the ‘Corporate SRI Activity’ filter
  • Read more detailed information about individual funds and fund managers (nb they vary a great deal!) and visit fund manager websites via links shown within the ‘More Info’ areas
  • Search SRI options by ‘Geographic region’ and ‘Asset type’ to aid portfolio planning

You can also identify your / your client’s preferred ‘SRI Styles‘ with our online SRI Stylefinder fact find tool.

This helps to simplify fund selection by identifying the  types of SRI option that are most likely to be appropriate given a client’s stated ethical/SRI opinions.  (The tool will tell you wish styles a person prefers and you can enter this information into the SRI Styles filter field in the main fund tool. to generate a list of relevant funds.)

We recommend people complete this tick box questionnaire in their own time – and save or print the report it can generates so that it can be  discussed with an adviser when appropriate.  (Please note it is optional whether or not you personalise this report. )

User notes:

  • Leave fields blank if you do not wish to use them (do not select a random option as this will effect the filtering.)
  • It can be best to start off with only a few boxes ticked as a number of the filters reduce the fund output list.
  • Detailed SRI information is only recorded in the primary fund entities.  You can ‘read this across’ to relate to funds in other product areas of the same name.
  • Tick the box on the left hand side of the fund entry list next to the fund name – to select a fund to save or print.
  • See the ‘About Fund EcoMarket’ area for further information
