We look at all funds available and remove any that overcharge or are not market-leading.

We only use reputable companies that embrace responsible investing.

What is ESG investing?

ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) are non-financial factors that the investment industry has adopted to measure the sustainability and ethical impact of investments. Money invested in our recommended funds will only be used to support companies that meet the fund's strict criteria. Companies that don't will have to find other investors. The more they struggle to find investors the more likely they are to change for the better.

Our approach to ESG investing

We have worked tirelessly to make sure that you get the best value for your money. We have searched the whole marketplace filtering through all the investment managers that charge extortionate amounts or sell "green" funds that offer a surprisingly light touch. Looking at in excess of one thousand funds available, we have combined funds that truly embrace ESG in their investment process, from some of the most reputable investment managers, at a market-leading cost. Who says ESG has to come at a premium?

What do we exclude from our fund choices?

When choosing funds that meet our high ESG standards, we have excluded the following:

  • Companies that generate 30% or more of their revenues from coal-related activities

  • Weapon manufacturers

  • Tobacco companies

  • Companies that do not comply with the United Nations Global Compact initiative[1]

In addition, the Vanguard funds chosen exclude all non-renewable energy and other vice products (Gambling, Alcohol, Adult Entertainment). Our L&G fund re-weight's holdings to its higher ESG scoring stocks.
