Wealthy European investors are beginning to see the long term value in sustainable funds. They are increasingly looking to Socially Responsible Investments (SRI’s), a form of investment that is dynamic and a solution. SRI’s combine financial objectives with social, ethical and environmental issues. Between June 2012 and June 2013, the U.K. saw ethical assets increase by 30 percent, gaining the second largest market in Europe, according to new analysis by evaluation agency, Vigeo. The appetite for green, social and ethical funds in Europe has grown considerably in spite of a tough economic climate, and has continued to show good growth over the course of 2015.
