Good Money Week is coming soon – get involved!2 October 2014
Good Money Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of sustainable, responsible and ethical finance to help people make good money choices.
Good Money Week is co-ordinated by UKSIF – the UK Sustainable Investment and Finance Association and will take place this year from 19-25 October.
The campaign, previously known as National Ethical Investment Week (NEIW), was rebranded as Good Money Week in 2014 to make the campaign relevant and accessible to a much wider audience; a reflection of how sustainable investment and finance has evolved and grown since the first NEIW was held in 2008. As part of the rebrand process, a new website was launched at the beginning of September: www.goodmoneyweek.com
What can you do to get involved?
Sustainable and ethical investment is a growing part of the market. Your clients may have a range of motivations in considering sustainable and ethical investment, including purely financial ones. Whatever these are, it is vital that you as advisers are in a position to fully meet your clients’ requirements.
As Financial Advisers, here are three simple ways you can get started:
1. Use the Good Money Week Toolkit to highlight your support for Good Money Week or you could add a Good Money Week section to your newsletter or marketing materials using this prepared Suggested text (pdf.) or Suggested text (word doc.)
2. Use your local media by writing a letter or article for your local paper, or contact your local paper and suggest they feature an article about sustainable investment and finance as part of Good Money Week.
3. Promote a free initial consultation or a ‘sustainable and ethical investment review’
Don’t forget to let UKSIF know what you have planned by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
