ABSTRACT
The article points out that ethical investing has evolved into a viable business in Great Britain with the number of independent financial advisors (IFAs) who have registered as ethical specialists increasing by 22 percent to 795 in 2005. Ethical IFAs have also observed an increase in demand for green mutual funds from retail investors. The question is whether such funds can compete with those which are not restricted by environmental requirements.
