New website to help build market for sustainable finance
National Ethical Investment Week has rebranded as Good Money Week in an effort to make the week more relevant to a mainstream audience.
As part of this strategy it has launched a new website - Goodmoneyweek.com - which will act as a hub for news and events as well as raise awareness of and build the market for sustainable and ethical investment and finance.
Good Money Week’s mission is to support the growth of the UK sustainable finance market and ensure everyone who utilises a financial product or service – from current accounts to investment portfolios - understands the influence of their financial decisions and the importance of engaging with their money and how it is being used.
Helen Wildsmith, Head of Ethical and Responsible Investment, CCLA, said: “Whether you want to understand the risks that climate change could cause to your investment returns, investigate how your money could better reflect your charity or church mission, or learn how to link your personal finances with your own views, Good Money Week shows how everyone can benefit from good investments’.”
Neville White, Head of SRI Policy and Research, Ecclesiastical Investment Management, commented: “We continue to see this area of the investment market grow and Good Money Week is a key initiative that provides information and clarity to both advisers and private investors alike.”
Good Money Week takes place 19-25 October 2014 and includes a varied programme of events around the country. UKSIF will be co-ordinating a range of activities including a call to Government to produce a Sustainable Spending Scorecard, social media campaigns, a ‘write to your MP’ action and a hustings and reception on the Terrace Pavilion of the Houses of Parliament.
