What is Good Money Week?
Hosted by UKSIF, Good Money Week is an annual event which brings people together to help promote sustainable, responsible and ethical finance. Their series of panels, discussions and debates give people the necessary information to make good money choices both in terms of financial return and ethical merit.
In recent years, there has been a significant increase in financial terminology that may be confusing for the consumer. Terms such as ESG, sustainable finance, stewardship, responsible finance, climate aware and SDG aligned (amongst others) may not be readily understood by the average consumer. Good Money Week aims to help demystify these aspects of finance.
Ethical Futures are fully aware of this issue within financial services so one of our partners, Julian Parrott, has become involved with the Small Business Practitioner Panel for our regulator, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). He has been involved in discussions about clear fund labelling and how investments are marketed to avoid customer detriment.
What will happen during Good Money Week?
Starting on Monday 4th October, there will be a series of online events covering a range of topics relating to multiple aspects of ethical finance. On Thursday 7th October, Julian will be taking part in a panel to discuss the risk that greenwashing poses to retail engagement. The points of interest that will be covered include; the signs of greenwashing, how to detect it, how it affects engagement.
