4. SIMPLE STEPS TO ETHICAL INVESTING
When you don’t know how ethical investing works, it can be pretty overwhelming.
At Evolution Financial Planning, we often get asked…
- What are the top ethical funds?
- Which are the most ethical companies to invest in?
- What are the best ethical stocks and shares to buy now?
- Why are there higher charges for some ethical investments vs others?
- How can I tell if ethical sustainable investing options are genuinely eco-friendly?
Most people also have concerns around general investment and financial planning matters such as risk avoidance, income vs lump sum investments, pensions, etc.
They’re worried that they might make a mistake and end up retiring with no money.
And, when you’ve worked hard all your life and done well, the idea of having nothing to show for it can be a terrifying prospect.
YOUR MONEY CAN WORK FOR YOU AND THE WORLD
What if you never have to feel unsure, worried, or embarrassed about your financial future?
Imagine if your investment income could fund your dream holiday home and give you the time to be there, minus any guilt?
What if you could relax in the knowledge that your hard-earned money is invested in companies that not only do no harm but that work purposefully to make a positive impact on the world?
You can achieve all this by investing ethically.
But the ethical investment landscape is expanding rapidly, making decisions around which options to choose ever more complex.

OBJECTIVE ETHICAL INVESTMENT ADVICE
Whether you’ve already done some investing or you’ve never invested before, we know the ethical market and can give you independent, unbiased guidance in developing a strategy that covers how, what, and where to invest.
Hi, I’m Rebecca Robertson. I’m the founder and director of Evolution Financial Planning and an independent financial advisor.
Where the money goes is where we’ll see the world change. That’s why ethical investing is so powerful as a force for good.
I love working in this field. I get to work with so many amazing clients. Most of them haven’t considered investing before but are drawn to the idea of having an impact with their money, whilst it grows.
In prior years ethical investing was deemed to be more expensive with worse results. That isn’t the case anymore. However, it has become less black and white of what is ethical and what isn’t.
As independent financial advisors with no ties to any specific investment firm, we encourage our clients to focus on what is key for their personal preferences. We can help you achieve a broad portfolio that is diverse and invested in multiple countries, industries, and markets.

We have used IFA’s in the past, but always felt like very small fish in a very large pond, and the advice and service has always felt very generic.
Rebecca has the ability to explain quite complicated financial challenges and investments in simple terms. It’s also clear that she genuinely cares about the advice she is giving and it’s not just a standard schtick that she roles out time after time.
My experience with Rebecca was really good because she listened to me and tried to address my concerns. I’d done my homework and had some detailed questions, and she gave me the answers.
Rebecca’s process made me feel that I’m doing all I can to look after myself and look after my investments. And that’s quite empowering.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU DON’T USE AN IFA?
However, there are numerous pitfalls to this, not least of all the time and effort it will take to discern which investments are genuinely ethical and which aren’t.
Whether you decide to use our services or not, we want you to feel completely comfortable and confident in your moral investment decisions. That’s why we’ve put together an ethical investment guide. It explains ethical investing and provides specific tips to help you navigate your ethical investment decisions.
