Good Money Week is the campaign to help grow and raise awareness of sustainable, responsible and ethical finance. This year, it takes place between 5th – 11th October 2019.

There will be events around the UK, as well as plenty of coverage in the media, showing that savers and investors can make money and make a difference to society at the same time.

At Magenta we are proud to be members of the UK Sustainable Investment and Finance Association (UKSIF) which organises Good Money Week to raise awareness of sustainable finance – to help people make good money choices.

What do we call ‘Good Money’?

We think of ’Good Money’ as being investments that consider the society we live in, such as the environment, social issues such as low pay, and how companies are governed. Good Money is about reflecting personal values, enhancing quality of life, safeguarding the environment, protecting future generations and, of course, generating wealth!

Using your money for the greater good

For those looking to make the world a better place, but not wanting to sacrifice returns or profits, positive impact and ethical investing aims to support positive social and environmental issues.

Over the years we have had many clients tell us that they don’t want to invest in certain things – usually tobacco, arms and animal testing, but few who have a clear idea of what they really would like to invest in – and it’s not always been easy or financially viable to find a solution.

The opportunities for individual investors to use their money to make a positive contribution is broader now than ever before and we are proud to be able to offer advice to assist clients in finding great investment solutions for the greater good.
