Ethical IFA of the week: Gaeia

There are plenty of independent financial advisers (IFAs) across the country who give advice on ethical investment. Our job is to tell you about them.

For two decades, Manchester-based Gaeia has been giving clients advice and guidance on ethical, sustainable and responsible investment.

Gaeia was founded in 1993 (it celebrates its 20th anniversary this year)  by human rights campaigner Brigid Benson, who says the firm’s mission is “not to put the world to rights tomorrow. We are simply attempting to insert stronger human values into the practices of big corporations.”

It recognises the hugely influential role that money plays in the world and aims to instil power into its clients by outlining their ethical investment options that will help move the banks, insurance companies and financial institutions onto a more sustainable path.

We aim to make a positive difference to the lives of our clients and the world in which we all live”, the company says.

Whether taking care of immediate or long-term financial decisions, our experience and insight provides clear guidance on everything from pensions, planning for your retirement, lump sum investments, to saving for the future, protecting your income, your business and much more.”

Helen Tandy, a director and financial adviser at Gaeia, spoke to Blue & Green Tomorrow last year about how she personally got into ethical investment and how having a family made her think differently about the future of the planet.

Two of her clients – Will and Sally Sutcliffe – also spoke to us in 2012 about their journey as ethical investors, and how Gaeia has helped their money do active good.
