Socially responsible investing

An increasing number of clients, in particular charities and family foundations, appreciate the importance of socially responsible investing (SRI) and wish their portfolios to have an ethical bias. Aberdeen’s specialist Responsible Investing team has a long-standing reputation as experts in this field.

When building portfolios for clients with SRI interests, we ensure that all investments selected for the portfolios satisfy our rigorous ethical criteria.
