Smug Money podcast #10: From recycling to positive investing

Written by Jen Gale on 8th Oct 2019

Want to make an even bigger contribution to saving the planet? It might be time to consider where your money goes.

Just because you don’t consider yourself an investor (yet) doesn’t mean it’s not time to think about where your money is going, whether that’s your workplace pension or your regular savings account.

Jen Gale, founder of the Sustainable(ish) blog, is the host for this enlightening chat with Damien Lardoux, Positive Impact Portfolio Manager for EQ Investors.

Damien explains why there is a huge education gap for normal folk about the power of their money to make a difference, why financial advisers are not helping the situation and how, if your money goes to the right companies, in the right funds, not only can you make a better financial return, the CO2 you can save might just be the equivalent to taking some cars off the road.

It’s all about understanding the power that your pension and other investments have to change the world for good.
