Investing wisely

The last few years have seen a growing trend of integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues into investment decisions to ensure they are genuinely sustainable. Now, as we emerge from the immediate effects of the coronavirus pandemic in the UK, ESG investment decisions are accelerating out of both desire and financial necessity. Companies and funds that have a strong emphasis on ESG goals have outperformed their less resilient rivals, and responsible investment is now not only the environmentally friendly decision,  but also the fiscally sensible decision as well. There is a growing community of investors that are seeking stable, long-term returns, with an increase in interest in sustainable finance.
