Pot of green—not gold—at end of rainbow

Pot of green—not gold—at end of rainbow

The Irish have ditched gold for green in a new survey conducted by Clear Financial.

Given four long-term investment options, 58% of Irish adults favoured renewable energy versus the 22% who thought gold would hold its value. Property managed a meagre 10% and confidence in shares was a rock bottom 7%.

Michael Bradley, managing director of Clear Financial, said, “While we’ve seen a definite swing towards alternative investment types, we were pretty shocked by the absolute drop in confidence in the more traditional investment classes of property and shares.”

Given recent news that 85% of Brits back renewable energy, you’d like to think that politicians would start to get the message…

Sadly not.
