Ethical investing and performance: the price of conscience

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


Previous articles asked why ethical investment matters, introduced sustainable (environmental, social and governance, or ESG) investing; or looked at different approaches, including fund selection. This article is the first of two considering
the ‘price of conscience’, challenging the view that ethical investments are more likely to underperform. Here, arguments supporting ethical out-performance are explored, while a future article will review studies of actual performance.
