Investment Life & Pension Moneyfacts SRI feature

July 22nd, 2020

It is lovely to have contributed once again to ‘Investment Life and Pensions Moneyfacts’ editor Richard Eagling’s annual SRI feature – entitled ‘Green Power’ .

In addition to lots of great commentary the market performance statistics are fantastic, with their analysis showing ‘All ethical funds’ performance outstripping ‘All non ethical funds’ over 1, 3, 5, 10, and 15 years.

The feature which begins:

‘Richard Eagling reports on some new initiatives that should spark greater interest in responsible investment and how ethical funds are generating superior returns…’

can be downloaded in full as a pdf here:  Green Power ILP Moneyfacts feature July 12-16_20  

I fully appreciate that I am biased – but this is a really good read.  A great summary of what is happening in this market right now.

I’d particularly recommend the comments from Mike Clark of Ario Consulting, talking on very recent pensions activity (that I am yet to write up for this blog).
