Seems to be a gap in the market given the rising use of sustainable investment strategies. If demand is there then it seems worth exploring.

What's your thoughts?


I'm all for investors investing in a socially responsible manner. That being said, the idea that I would turn the decision of what is "socially responsible" over to someone besides myself is as laughable as me attending a church/temple/mosque so some priest/minister/rabbi/mullah could tell me what to believe in is.

As for the people offering their services, while I am sure some are well intended, much like the religious crowd, many are in it for their own self interests i.e. think shysters.

Sorry you asked? :<)
