Our approach to responsible investing

Lots of financial advisers can make you wealthier… But at what cost?

At Castell, we believe that a high-performance investment strategy and investing in a better world don’t have to be mutually exclusive. Join us on the journey towards a better world.

We believe that good investment performance and being ethical are not mutually exclusive. But it’s not always about making big statements. It’s about being better, taking incremental steps, and helping those around us to do the same.

Responsible investing is about using money as a force for good, by taking environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) issues into consideration to create a better future for all.

Responsible investing is not about sacrificing returns on your money.

Rather, it is a key metric when looking at a company’s future potential.  As shareholders demand action, the need for companies to consider their impact on the planet grows, as does the consequences for those companies that fail to adapt.

We believe that through responsible investing, we can help shape a better world and build a sustainable future.
