ASI UK Ethical Equity

A fund that looks to deliver a portfolio of UK stocks across the market cap spectrum that are chosen for their positive impact on society and the environment.

The manager will select stocks from a diversified basket of names which meet strict ethical criteria which is decided by the ethical committee. They will screen out stocks in negative sectors such as tobacco, armaments or human right abuses and will then look for companies that they regard as making a positive contribution to society, such as renewables and support services. The manager looks to build a portfolio of stocks which have attractive long term growth prospects. We like the fund due to the emphasis on a strict, criteria-based ethical process as well as being one of the best performing UK funds with an experienced manager.
