FT podcast: How to get started in ESG investing

Claer Barrett talks to listener Harri about the world of ethical investment. Listen here

The 29-year old is saving £1,000 per month into his retirement fund and has noticed a growing array of ESG options (a label applied to investments that address environment, social and governance considerations). Are they genuinely doing good — or have they just done a good job on their marketing? And does investing ethically mean he has to sacrifice some investment returns?

Experts Gillian Tett, the FT’s Editor-at-large, US, and Moira O’Neill, FT Money columnist and head of personal finance at Interactive Investor, offer their tips.
