Ethical, or Socially Responsible investment offers the opportunity for investors and savers to avoid the companies whose activities they would not want to support, and invest in those operating within a moral framework that reflects their own moral stance.Responsible investors understand that companies or assets won’t thrive whilst ignoring environmental, social issues, corporate governance issues or ethical issues.
