Funds by investing theme

We asked global research house Morningstar to find the top-ranked funds for three popular investing themes.

Low Carbon aim to avoid damaging the environment
No Sin Stocks aim to exclude tobacco, arms and drugs
Good Governance aims for better business practice

These lists refresh regularly, so check back for updates. Morningstar creates these lists by analysing ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) data and various other metrics. To really dig into their methodology, put your maths hat on and read more on their website.
