Good Money Week

Good Money Week

Many of us make a conscious effort to recycle or reuse products, we give money to charity and generally do our best to help others. This thought process does not always then extend to the social and environmental impact of our money and investments.

Good Money Week runs from 5-11 October 2019 and is ‘the campaign to raise awareness of sustainable, responsible and ethical finance’ in the UK. Whether your money is in a simple bank account, an investment or a pension, your money is being used by companies around the world to help them do business. 

Many of the standard options available to investors will include companies who: pollute the environment, rely on child or unpaid labour, require their employees to work in unsafe conditions and (directly or indirectly) reduce biodiversity across the globe. 

At Lovewell Blake we take your ethics seriously. We will endeavour to individually tailor your investments to suit not only your financial objectives but also any particular ethical preferences. We can exclude many of these companies through our rigorous screening process

Why not book a review of your financial affairs during good money week to see how we can provide this while still growing your money over the longer term. Contact us to find out more.
