How sustainable investing has been an “absolute transformation” for one of our clients

18 January 2022 in CGWM news, ESG investing

“How could I be doing better than a big pension fund?”

CGWM client Michael Garfield recently spoke to The Sunday Times about his experience investing with our ESG portfolio service, calling it “an absolute transformation” for his pension.

While Mr Garfield invests in ESG partly for ethical reasons, he told the interviewer: “I don’t see it as sacrificing performance; I see it as getting on the escalator going on to the next floor up.”

Please note that Mr Garfield is invested in our risk level 6 ESG Growth portfolio (see our risk brochure for details). The chosen risk level influences returns and individual account performance may differ. Fees and charges apply and will defer between providers. A breakdown of our fees and charges is available on our rate card (which is available upon request).
