Ethical investing: your questions

Robin Keyte, Mark Hoskin and Mark Robertson
BBC Radio 4's Money Box Live
Wednesday 24 June at 1502 BST On BBC Radio 4 and Online

Paul Lewis took your questions about ethical investment and put them to a panel of expert guests on Wednesday's programme.

Just under £7 billion is currently invested in Britain's green and ethical retail funds and there are around 90 products for investors to choose from.

Do you want your investments to make a positive contribution to society or the environment?

What products are available and how can you find one which matches your personal values?

Can I find out how ethical my bank or building society are?

How have ethical accounts and funds performed during the recession?

Or perhaps you have a question about jargon?

What is meant by "engagement", "preference" and "screening"?

Our panel of experts were here to advise you.

Money Box Live presenter Paul Lewis was joined by:

• Mark Hoskin, partner, Holden and Partners

• Robin Keyte, director, Towers of Taunton

• Mark Robertson, communications & development manager, Ethical Investment Research Service

Presenter: Paul Lewis
Producer: Diane Richardson
