In the run up to National Ethical Investment Week (NIEW) financial advisers are being offered the chance to receive training in ethical finance.

At a series of seminars in London and Southampton, experts will explain how financial advisers can use money to make a difference.

The events, hosted by the UK Sustainable Investment and Finance Association (UKSIF) and the Association of Independent Financial Advisers (Aifa), will provide financial advisers with a range of information on green and ethical investing.

Advisers who attend the seminars will also be given access to free online training materials.

Penny Shepherd, UKSIF chief executive, said: “We encourage all advisers to use National Ethical Investment Week as an opportunity to speak to their clients about today’s green and ethical investments.

“These seminars, and our other adviser support, will help them to respond to the growing client interest.”

Chris Cummings, Aifa director general, added: “Green and ethical investment is a very important area and one in which many investors have a growing interest. It is vital that advisers are informed about the issues involved.

“Consumers are keen to take a more ethical route and IFAs should embrace the business opportunities this presents.”
