What's next for sustainable investors?

Introduction

Sustainable investing enjoyed a boom in 2020, with funds that have environmental, social and governance considerations as part of their process winning a larger part of the investment market in the UK.

That led to a significant amount of new product being launched. But 2022 has been tougher, as higher interest rates have disrupted most asset classes, and particularly hit earlier stage and growth businesses. At the same time, longer-term trends are being called into question by the pace of technological change.

This guide will explore all of those questions, and it comes with 60 minutes of CPD.
