Investing in a Sustainable ISA: A Guide to Aligning Your Money with Your Values

Sustainable investing is a growing trend that allows investors to align their investments with their values and make a positive impact on the world. One way to do this is through a sustainable Stocks and Shares ISA (Individual Savings Account), which grants you the freedom to invest up to £20,000 per year without paying capital gains tax on any profits.
In this blog, we will discuss the steps you can take to invest in a sustainable stocks and shares ISA.
As per individual tax circumstances, if you have any queries regarding your tax position, please seek guidance by a tax professional advisor.

How to find sustainable funds that match your values

We see the future of investing as one where sustainable stocks and shares ISAs will be the norm. Get ahead of the curve by learning how to find sustainable funds that match your values.

Before investing, it is important to understand what values are most important to you. This could include themes from climate solutions, gender equality, to support for clean energy. Understanding your values will help you create a sustainable ISA that aligns with your beliefs.
Once you know what values or industries are exciting to you as an investor, you can start to:
1. Compare sustainable ETFs 
Find ETFs that have been screened for sustainability in some form or another. Some people stick to ESG funds, however not all are as sustainable as each other. 
GOODFOLIO funds are screened to meet our transparency and sustainability information standards, which aim to increase transparency and reduce the risk of greenwashing. 
2. Look for specific ETFs
If you have a specific type of investment in mind, you can search for ETFs that focus on that area. For example, you can search for “water ETFs” or “biotech ETFs” to find funds that align with your values.
3. Read the prospectus  
Before investing, it is important to read the prospectus of the ETFs you are considering. This will give you a better understanding of the fund's investment objectives, strategy, and holdings.

Find Sustainable ISA providers:

Once you know your values and even have some specific funds in mind, you can start researching stocks and shares ISA providers that offer sustainable investment options. 
Look for providers that offer funds that align with your values whilst also meeting your general investment needs. Ideally they have already done the hard work for you by separating funds into sustainability themes such as climate funds or biotech ETFs.
Then you can browse through their options and take a closer look at the funds to evaluate them from both a financial and sustainability point of view.
