Despite a rising interest in ESG and Responsible Investment across the investment industry, recent research carried out by Square Mile highlighted there is still much confusion and misinterpretation surrounding these trends and what they mean for the advice sector.

In Square Mile’s recent ESG Pathway events, in partnership with ESG Clarity, we were joined by two panels of advisers to discuss how they have started their journeys towards ESG integration and Responsible investment, the evolution of their client conversations and how they are avoiding ‘greenwashed’ funds.
