The fifth annual Voice of the Adviser survey gathered responses from over 200 financial advisers, on the state of their industry, sustainable investment and the economy. 2014 saw strong growth with promising signs for 2015. Today we look at the sustainable, responsible and ethical investment fund providers.
We asked all financial advisers which ethical fund providers they use most often. The top five funds of this type used by financial advisers are Ecclesiastical (45%), Friends Provident (43%), Kames (40%), Jupiter (39%) and Alliance Trust (27%).
Amongst EIA members (the adviser body for ethical investment specialists), Ecclesiastical (80%), Jupiter (80%), Kames (70%) and Pictet (70%). Alliance Trust, F&C, Friends Provident and Standard Life all enjoyed support from 60%. First State, Rathbone, Royal London and WHEB all gained the support of 50%.
