Award-winning sustainable investment funds


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.
