An ‘Individual Investor’ Introduction to Fund EcoMarket

Leaf with rain drop istock

Fund EcoMarket is primarily designed to support financial services professionals, however we welcome everyone who is interested in sustainable investment and ethical fund options.

We are not authorise to offer advice so can not directly support individual investors, however you are welcome to peruse our fund tool, which is ‘for information only’ and not to be viewed as advice of any form.

This free to use information hub helps users to…

  • Read about ethical, sustainable and responsible investment fund policies and strategies
  • Understand the core similarities and differences between these funds with the help of our unique ‘SRI Styles’ labelling system.
  • You can use our SRI StyleFinder Questionnaire to identify your best fit ‘SRI Style(s)’
  • This information can be used to help inform your investment decision making whether you chose to invest via a financial adviser, via an online platform or direct with an investment fund provider.

What’s on Fund EcoMarket?

Our aim is to help people to bring their lifestyle choices into their investment strategies by showing fund strategies that are specifically designed to help address environmental, social, governance and ethical issues and opportunities.

  • Fund EcoMarket is a comprehensive directory of all ethical, sustainable & responsible Investment funds (onshore, regulated, retail only) displaying information about what makes these options unique.
  • The site shows ethical fund and other SRI strategy information only.  This is partly because this is our area of expertise (and interest!) and also because there are plenty of other sources of information on topics such as performance and price.
  • Fund EcoMarket is for information purposes only.  This site is not to be viewed as ‘advice’ of any kind.

Fund EcoMarket – from sriServices – provider of specialist SRI support  

  • Fund EcoMarket has been a finalist in a number of industry awards since its launch in late 2015. It was ‘Highly Commended’ (ie ‘runner up’) in the Corporation of London’s Sustainable City (Sustainable Finance) Awards 2015.  We have also been finalists in a number of Investment Week awards during 2016 & 2017.
  • Fund EcoMarket is independently owned (by sriServices – who specialise in supporting the financial services community).  This site is unbiased, free for everyone to use and there are ‘no strings attached’.
  • Our thanks go to our sponsors and supporters who share our passion for growing this important area! (Their logos are displayed on the site.)

 

Please be aware the primary purpose of this tool is to support the financial services community – although we are very happy to share this information with anyone and everyone who may find it useful!

We do not deal directly with individual investors as we are not regulated or authorised to offer financial advice.

Please contact an authorised adviser if you would like advice.

A list of financial advisers who have confirmed to us that they offer SRI and ethical investment advice to all clients can be found on our ‘Find Adviser’ page –  or you may search Unbiased.co.uk or Vouchedfor to find an adviser in your area.
