Ethical Investment In Scotland

In 2018 the Ethical Finance Hub commissioned the University of St Andrews’ Centre for Responsible Banking & Finance to conduct an analysis of the responsible investment landscape in Scotland. The final report, to be launched Q1 2019, investigates the current landscape of ethical investments in Scotland by:

  1. Examining asset managers and owners that actively engage in ethical investing.
  2. Identifying and examining Scottish based investment funds that meet the criteria of being ethical.
  3. Scrutinising Scottish listed companies that form the potential investment universe for ethical investors worldwide.

To put the findings into perspective, comparisons between Scotland, the rest of the UK, and their close neighbour, Ireland are also drawn.
