If you are socially conscious you can still grow your wealth. Although currently there is less choice, there are good funds available and this includes ethical bonds funds. The research demands are as much if not more with regards to fund selection. Firstly, there is a difference between Ethical funds and Sustainable funds. Some funds look to negatively screen industries or types of companies. Others are looking for socially positive impact and value. Some use a combination of the two approaches. The size and age of companies invested in can also vary. This all needs to be investigated within their documentation. The bottom line is, if this is a high priority for you, meaningful growth can be achieved with the appropriate due diligence.
