It's not ESG being green

Can ESG funds save the planet while delivering strong investment returns?

ESG funds claim to be able to keep the environment - and your conscience - clean. And all while delivering better returns than the broad market.

We dig into how ESG indexes are constructed, what returns we can expect, and whether the environmental claims actually stack up. We also consider alternative investments which might be better placed to achieve the same goals.

In the Dumb Question of the Week, we ask: Why would anyone buy bonds with a negative yield? Aren't you guaranteed to lose money?
