How best to invest responsibly?

October saw the launch of a new Responsible Investing sector on FundCalibre and we asked visitors to our website, which process was best for funds in this area: negative screening, positive screening or a combination of both?

More than half (55%) responded that a combination of both would be best, about a quarter preferred positive screening alone and just 8% thought negative screening alone was the optimum. 13% were unsure.

*Based on feedback from 66 FundCalibre visitors from 02/10/15 – 31/10/15

Past performance is not a reliable guide to future returns. Remember, all investments can fall in value as well as rise, so you could make a loss.
