With most investment groups adopting ESG in some form, how do advisers choose a strategy which is right for clients?
We saw it with technology shares and now we may be seeing it with ESG stocks: an investment trend becomes fashionable, then crowded, then ripe for exit for investors there from the start.
Though ‘Responsible Investing' has been around for some time, the recent outperformance of ESG-friendly companies against peers has prompted questions about which approach best meets investors' needs.
This is because a blanket ban approach to ESG - where managers automatically exclude companies or sectors that do not meet their ESG criteria - can have some unintended consequences for investors, companies, and economies. There is a better way.

Past performance is not a guide to future performance. The value of investments can go down as well as up, so your client could get back less than they invested. The value of funds can fall and rise purely as a result of exchange rate fluctuations. Investments in newer markets, smaller companies or single sectors offer the possibility of higher returns but may also involve a higher degree of risk.
