UK - The UK Social Investment Forum has stepped up its campaign to encourage money purchase scheme members to invest ethically.
It will consult with the Association of Independent Financial Advisers during the summer in a bid to enhance the ethical options on offer for scheme members.
Meanwhile, a consumer website – www.InvestAbility.org – has been launched for people interested in ethical and socially responsible investment.
The site – funded by the Ethical Investment Research Service – offers information about the ethical option, a “draft toolkit” for IFAs and a list of IFAs experienced in ethical investment.
