Understanding ESG

Attitudes are changing. Investors are increasingly looking to make a positive contribution to society and the environment through their personal finances, driving us towards a cleaner, heathier and more equitable future.

Responsible investing – which incorporates environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria into the investment process – has become an increasingly significant consideration for investors in recent years. But despite this it’s still the cause of much confusion.

Investment risks

  • The value of investments and any income will fluctuate (this may partly be the result of exchange rate fluctuations) and investors may not get back the full amount invested.

Important information

  • Where individuals or the business have expressed opinions, they are based on current market conditions, they may differ from those of other investment professionals and are subject to change without notice.
