Award-winning sustainable investment funds

By Mike Narouei, Content Producer at Boring Money

Everybody loves a winner. So here are 9 award-winning sustainable investment funds to consider for your portfolio. Fancy helping the environment? Got it covered. Want something innovative? Look no further...

When you're on the hunt for an investment fund, best buy lists can be really handy for trimming down the thousands upon thousands of options. 70% of investors say they use them, and 25% say they rely on them. The thing is, most of these lists don't let you easily filter for sustainable investments, so you're left trying to decipher long, bizarre, technical fund names, hoping 'ESG' or 'Impact' will turn up. Not ideal if you're short on time or patience. So what can you do? Look for trophies instead.
