Ethical Investing  

Government tells IFAs to increase social impact investing

The comments come in the wake of data from the Investment Association, which showed the entire ethical investment sector accounts for just 1.2 per cent of the total of assets under management in the UK.

Jason Hollands, managing director for communications and business development at Tilney Group, said demographics have a part to play, as older people tend to be less interested in ethical investments but this is the segment of the population with the most cash to invest.
