You will be best placed to work out what works best for you and your clients, but there are some suggestions based on what we hear:

  • for some advisers discussing ‘SRI Styles’ (or similar) works well  – particularly if a client prefers to discuss their core ‘types of interests’  without necessarily discussing detail.
  •  for some advisers showing clients a list of ethical, social and environmental issues and discussing the investment options that exist (eg avoid, support, engage) works best – particularly where clients have specific areas of interest
  • for some advisers a combination of these two approaches works best.  A conversation can be started with a discussion of ‘SRI Styles’ and refined further if required.

Fact Finding links and downloads

  • Go to the SRI StyleFinder on line questionnaire on Fund EcoMarket to identify preferred SRI Styles.  This is a microsite and does not link back to Fund EcoMarket – you can send this link to your clients, or complete it whilst with your client. This has a report function for adviser audit trail purposes.
  • Download a hard copy of our SRI StyleFinder Questionnaire pdf  this document can be sent to a client.  When complete you can use this information on our online SRI StyleFinder questionnaire to identify a client’s best fit SRI Styles.  Use this in the SRI Styles filter on Fund EcoMarket to find relevant fund options.
  • Download our Supplementary fact find questionnaire that mirrors the filter options on Fund EcoMarket – helping you to identify specific areas of interest to a client.  [Please note this is due to be updated as we are currently increasing the number of issues we research.]
