Top 50 Fund EcoMarket searches April 2019

May 7th, 2019

In a month when climate change was constantly in the news it will surprise few to see that Fund EcoMarket users regularly searched for fund options listed as: ‘sustainability themed’, ‘environmentally themed’, ‘environmental policy’, ‘climate change policy’, ‘avoids coal, oil & gas majors’, ‘invests in clean energy / renewables’ .

The high ranking of ‘animal welfare policy’ and ‘animal testing exclusion policy’ –  may however surprise some.

The total number of  events (‘clicks’) were 1943 during April, from 930 users – according to Google Analytics.
