Ethical Investors Group is unique amongst financial advisers. Like all financial advisers, and this includes IFAs, tied agents, Bank and Building Society advisers, we are remunerated either by fees or commissions. Unlike all other advisers, we do something quite different with the fees and commissions we earn.
Since 1989, Ethical Investors Group has pledged to give away at least 50% of its own net profits to charities, campaign groups and good causes. That is 50% of the profit from our fees and commissions; not our clients money. We'd like to see other advisers offering advice on ethical investment do the same, but after 18 years we are still waiting!
To date, we have distributed over £500,000 to organisations large and small. We have been able to react to natural disasters such as Tsunamis, Earthquakes and floods and we've also built an eco village in Southern India.
