Fund EcoMarket SRI Database – Quarterly Update completed

The ‘SRI FundFinder’ area of the Fund EcoMarket database is used by industry professionals to identify SRI options which have been segmented according to their approach to SRI (‘SRI Style’), high level investment area and product area.

The tool carries over 400 live listings and is updated quarterly.

The database works alongside the ‘SRI StyleFinder’ client fact find questionnaire.

  • WHEB fund name changed to ‘FP WHEB Sustainability’
  • Truestone fund name changed to ‘IM Truestone Global Impact’
