By far the UK’s biggest DIY investment platform, Hargreaves Lansdown (HL) has around 1.4 million clients – representing a massive 40 per cent of the market.
Here, Charlene Cranny – former director of Good Money Week and founder of Economy of Good – talks to Emma Wall, Head of Investment Analysis at HL, about the firm’s approach to ethical investing and the changes it’s been making to help customers more easily align their money with their morals.
“We’re not in the business of excluding investments from people,” says Emma. “We want to offer as much range as possible and then help to inform people so they can make those choices. Because what ethical investing means is different for different people.”
