There are different types of investments; you can use your money for both, only for you or for the whole
planet (earth) too. But it is reality that without any planning you cannot succeed.
Consider what you mean by ethical:
There are so many different types of ethical funds, according to their criteria, which you can choose.
And also there are screen-out businesses, which involved in tobacco, alcohol, pornography, animal
testing and nuclear energy. Before choosing am investment fund which match your profile, you should
have to sensible answer some tricky questions given below.
Now ask these questions from yourself, don’t you like animal testing for medical purposes, or against
it only for cosmetics? Or if you’re an environmentalist, do you consider the nuclear energy as a devil’s
work, or it is practical type of solution for global warming?
Find an ethical IFA:
You should have to get the advice, or more than that, when you don’t feel comfortable while choosing
your investment funds. And your ethical profile should have to be checked carefully, by the advisor,
before recommending you any fund. But most IFA’s won’t go in so details.
Choose your manager carefully:
While investing, remember one thing some fund managers only dip into ethical investing and the others
fully dedicated. So all investors should have to ask themselves, whether the manager’s criterion is rigid,
or the funds have any specialist team or just a manager is there. And the important thing us they have
a position on any new challenge like bio-fuels. Knowledgeable managers are recommended to look for
new investment opportunities in the areas such as climate change, waste and water and also in organic
food as well.
Be prepared for smaller returns:
Remember that Ethical funds are one of the great hurdles when competing against those funds which
are free to invest in any company.
And most of the ethical managers try to avoid from oil, mining and commodities which have been
hottest sectors, recently.
But remember performance does meter:
You are going to invest for the sake of making a bright future so try to strike a balance between your
principle amount and the amount of profit. Don’t only examine where you are investing your funds, but
also check how it has performed.
Try to get long-term details of your chosen fund not only for the last three or more years when the
growth rate was so healthy for you.
