Q: Is sustainable investing going mainstream? A: Yes

Written by Rebecca O'Connor on 18th April 2018

A sustainability fund has entered the top ten most-purchased funds on 7IM, the investment platform, for the first time.

Liontrust Sustainable Future Corporate Bond 2 is number 7 on the top ten list.

Camilla Ritchie, Senior Investment Manager, 7IM, who leads on the 7IM Sustainable Balance Fund, said: “There has been much talk in the industry about whether sustainable investing is starting to hit the mainstream. The fact that a fund focussed on sustainability has made the tables during the all-important ‘ISA season’ suggests a resounding yes, something that is very encouraging to see.”

Liontrust Sustainable Futures funds are among the highest-ranked funds for positive impact according to 3D Investing, which publishes the Good Investment Review on Good With Money.

Mike Appleby, of Liontrust, will speak on our panel webcast discussion: “What are the most profitable trends in sustainable investing?” on May 16 at 1pm, on our Youtube channel.
