On 1st July 2020, Square Mile completed their purchase of Ethical Money Limited, who power the highly acclaimed 3D Investing.
3D Investing was founded by John Fleetwood in 2014 to help investors identify those funds that best meet the 3D philosophy of "doing good, avoiding harm and leading change". This led to the development of the 3D Star Rating, which is now applied to over 270 responsible and sustainable funds and is used by advisers and asset managers to help select funds and to develop model portfolios.
With interest in this area continuing to move at a rapid pace, this acquisition brings together two advocates in this area; enhancing Square Mile's capabilities of ESG integration and Responsible investment services and extends the reach of 3D Investing's proposition.
In this short video, Square Mile's Managing Director, Richard Romer-Lee and Director of Responsible and Sustainable Investing, John Fleetwood discuss this acquisition and what it means for the two businesses.
