Julian Parrott is a partner with Ethical Futures.
He is willing to give us an hour of his time on Wednesday 25 July at 7.00pm at St Andrew’s and St George’s West. This free event is open to members and non members alike. It will help us to think about the values behind ethical investing. He will not be offering investment advice, but will give a short talk and be willing to answer questions on a very important theme.
This is what Ethical Futures work to achieve:
“We believe that our money really can change our world. It’s not just about avoiding things you don’t believe in. It’s also about seeking positive investments and encouraging big businesses to become more responsible corporate citizens. We know ’green wash’ when we see it, but we also acknowledge that sometimes it’s better to work from within than from outside. That’s why, when we see ethical investments with holdings that we don’t understand, we’ll lobby investment houses for reasons why they’re included. And when we can see no logical reason for investment in questionable businesses, we’ll make representations to investment houses for exclusion of these businesses from their portfolios.”
Pop the date in your diary, it might help you change the world.
