Kames Ethical Investment Webinar success

It was good to hear Kames (formerly Aegon) reaffirming their commitment to the SRI market today – reporting strongly positive inflows across their ethical range during 2011 – and the on-going importance of the area to the group.

The 45 minute webinar also covered a range of  topical ‘macro’ issues –  including the world economic outlook, the Eurozone troubles and UK interest rate outlook.  Fund performance, asset allocation and ethical screens  were also discussed.

The presenters also confirmed that whilst they are working with the ABI on the banking sector’s governance issues the funds are not exposed to the big banks.  As such the on-going bonus squabbles and the like are not relevant to investors in their ethical funds.

If you missed the BrightTalk webinar and would like to hear their fund managers discussing their range of strictly screened ethical funds – which we classify as ‘Traditional Ethical’ –  see below for webinar.
