Ethical & Sustainable Investing

If you want your investments to help make the world more ethical and sustainable, our expert advisors can help find the perfect portfolio for you. We can talk you through investment ideas which align to your ethical and sustainability values, while also helping you make the most of your money.

Because of the global focus on environmental issues and ethical behaviours, businesses, governments and consumers are now choosing to invest in more sustainable and ethical projects.

Our ethical, sustainable and governance (ESG) Portfolios only invest in companies with positive products and services, avoiding those that have a negative environmental or social impact.

What Do We Offer?

We offer a range of portfolios that take an ESG responsible approach to investments. We seek out the best performing funds while combining both negative and positive screening for ESG factors. This means on top of our financial evaluation, we also evaluate each investment’s positive and negative impact on the planet.

This allows us to focus on high performance investments which also contribute towards a more sustainable and inclusive world.

Our Process

For our ESG range, we use a blend of investments from across the ethical, sustainable and governance investment spectrum.

Like our entire active managed range, we build our ESG by utilising our Strategic Asset Allocation (SAA) and Tactical Asset Allocation (TAA). 

The SAA is the long term investment focus for each model portfolio, looking at allocating long-term positions to asset classes such as equities, fixed income and cash.

The TAA focuses on taking advantage of shorter-term opportunities to enhance portfolio returns. We apply tactical tilts to the portfolio to take advantage of opportunities and manage market risks. This means we can make adjustments to your portfolio to take advantage of opportunities or provide protection in periods of uncertainty. We can make these adjustments at various levels from Asset allocation, all the way down to stock selection.

Our dedicated investment management team will look after the day to day investment of your capital. Our team is made up of seven people who have decades of experience, ranging from strategic asset allocation and tactical positioning to security selection.

How We Manage Your Portfolio

The ESG Portfolios will be available across a choice of model portfolio risk profiles. Clients’ attitude to risk (ATR), capacity for loss and objectives will dictate how we allocate to asset classes such as equities, fixed income, and cash. We’ll adjust these allocations to achieve your objectives while managing risk.

ATR Mappings Equity Ranges
Cautious to low moderate Cautious 0-35
Low moderate Balanced 20-60
Moderate Growth 40-85
Moderate to adventurous Growth 40-85
Adventurous Adventurous 50-100
