About the EIA

The EIA is a separate chapter of UKSIF – the UK Sustainable Investment and Finance Association – for financial advisers. We provide support to advisers keen to offer green and ethical investment advice to their clients.

The EIA was started by financial advisers in 1998 with the goal of developing green and ethical investment in the UK and to share ideas about incorporating green and ethical investment into the financial advice process.

The EIA is run by the EIA Advisory Group which consists of volunteers taken from the membership. It is also supported by a Secretariat provided by UKSIF.

Members agree to abide by a code of conduct and to engage in a continued programme of training and development in the field of green and ethical investment and financial planning.

Our Aims:

  • Engender an environment of dialogue and discussion with Government and Regulators via our associations with other bodies

  • To increase public access to financial advice on green and ethical investment

  • Raise standards amongst financial advisers when offering financial advice on green and ethical investment.

EIA members meet for EIA Conferences. These events are free to financial advisers and are held in various locations throughout Britain.  They consist of presentations from fund managers, ethical research teams, product providers and other speakers from the financial services industry and elsewhere relevant to ethical investment.
