This has been touched on before at viewtopic.php?f=88&t=66214&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&hilit=ethical&start=0 but it was a long time ago and I want to ask a specific question.
I don’t have the knowledge or inclination to invest in companies on an individual basis but I don’t want my money used for dodgy shit. So I guess I am looking for some kind of fund(?).
Does anyone know of either an investment fund, plan, package whatever, or a bank account that invests your money selectively, avoiding the worst types of companies - arms manufacturers, child molesters, that kind of thing.
I have a savings account in the UK with a bank that has a member defined ethical policy excluding various things like arms manufacturers that sell indiscriminately, the worst polluters etc. They also actively promote activities that are good for the environment or community, such as recycling and affordable housing. This policy is unique amongst high street banks in the UK - and for all I know, the world.
Bottom line is, I just want to put my money somewhere reasonably sound, where I don’t have to make too many decisions or worry about it. Any ideas?
