Choosing greener investments in uncertain times - how can investors get peace of mind that their investments aren't funding destruction? Join our webinar to hear from a great panel on greener funds.

More than ever before, people are worried that their money or pensions are being invested in industries that don't align with their values. Russia's invasion of Ukraine prompted many people to ask whether their investment fund or pension provider has any links with Russia. And with the latest IPCC report forcing the ongoing fight against the climate crisis back to the forefront of our minds, many investors are questioning whether they're unwittingly funding fossil fuel companies.

And with the greenwashing of financial products a big issue, it can be hard for investors to identify truly ‘green’ or ‘ethical’ funds or investment products.

This webinar, hosted by Ethex, is aimed at anyone who has questions about investing to do good. Whether you’re an existing investor who wants to know more about where your money is being used, or you’re thinking of starting out but don’t know where to find truly green investments, our panel of experts are here to demystify the ethical investing space.

Our panel will represent fund providers who are not only 100% transparent about where their funds are invested, but who actively select stocks in businesses and organisations with a positive environmental and social impact. We will talk about the options available to ethical investors, the sectors that they can positively invest in as well as those they should avoid and we’ll discuss ways to spot greenwashing and identify investments that align with your values.

Our panel will talk about their impact investment strategies and discuss the pitfalls investors face when looking for 'green' investing options. They will be available for a Q&A where attendees can put their impact investing questions to them.


Panellists:
Lisa Ashford, CEO, Ethex
George Latham, WHEB Asset Management
Adam Robbins, Triodos Fund management
Abi Sater, The Big Exchange
Julian Parrott - Ethical Futures
Charlene Cranny - Economy of Good
