Our Story

We started the company because we believe that you can make money by investing in good.  Investing and making a profit do not have to be mutually exclusive, in fact, the 2017 Responsible Investment Benchmark Report shows that historically ethical investment have outperformed mainstream investments. Ethical and responsible investment adds an additional layer of risk assessment to the investment process. This means that more risks likely to affect investment returns are taken into consideration when making investment decisions.

We want the work that we do to have a positive impact on the world. We feel blessed to have the opportunity to develop our skills and knowledge in the areas that we chose and we would like to share that with the rest of the community. We believe it is possible to develop the triple bottom line. We would like our business to create positive economic, social and environmental benefits.

To achieve this, we offer quality personal financial advice with a focus and specialisation in ethical & values based investment. We also choose products and overheads within the business that are as sustainable as possible and aim to keep the office paperless and online based.
