Investors Chronicle funds for 2020

Investors Chronicle explore how sustainability is becoming mainstream in the investment industry. The FP WHEB Sustainability fund is mentioned as an example of a fund investing in solutions to sustainability challenges.

Examining the role of the ESG compliance officer

The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants examines the role of the ESG compliance officer, the skills and experience required for the job, how to get into the profession, and where it can take you by talking to Laura Grenier, WHEB’s Finance, Compliance and Operations Manager.

More and more asset managers are launching ESG and sustainable investment products. CityAM writes that some industry figures have expressed concerns that certain companies have jumped on the ethical bandwagon without really committing to the cause. The FP WHEB Sustainability fund has been recognised as one of four funds who have met Ethical Consumer magazine’s rigorous ethical criteria. We are also proud to have been awarded Ethical Consumer’s Best Buy label.

Sustainability might be a way active investing can prove its value against concerns over fees and volatility that are spurring the flight to passives. In this Citywire Wealth Manager article, WHEB’s Managing Partner, George Latham, says underperformance against the index is not something endemic to sustainability funds.

Managing Partner George Latham was interviewed by Ethical Consumer magazine about what differentiates WHEB. We are proud that WHEB is one of very few investment firms to receive their Best Buy Label. The Ethical Consumer Best Buy Label helps shoppers choose genuinely ethical products and services. It’s a unique label that looks in detail at the ethical record of the company behind the product and the environmental and ethical record of the product itself.
