Ethical Investing: Why Should you Invest Ethically?
With it being World Wildlife Day, this month we're focusing on sustainable finances.
Have you considered investing ethically before?
Investing can be a great tool to prepare for the future and build financial stability, but by investing ethically you can help secure the future of this planet. Invest your money in sustainable portfolios and do both!
Read on for our top three reasons for why you should invest ethically, or scroll to the bottom for a quick visual overview.
Reasons to invest ethically:
1) Vote with your Wallet
Voting with your wallet is a powerful tool, as consumers we have the opportunity to align our spending with our values. If more people invested ethically then the demand would increase and create a clear signal that we want to put our money in the right places.
2) Express your Values
Following on from the previous point, by investing ethically you can express your values. You can show you care about the planet by investing in sustainable and ethical companies who are having a positive impact on people and the planet. We have the opportunity to invest our money with providers we believe in.
3) Invest in the Future
Ethically investing does not just ensure a future for your money, but a future for the planet too. Supporting carbon-intensive companies and un-ethical industries is having devastating effects on the world around us. By supporting good causes you can invest in a positive future for all of us.
Have we persuaded you?
Do some research into your financial provider and see what they are investing your hard-earned money into. You may be surprised.
