CMC Invest puts sustainable investing in customers hands with a new ESG offering

London, UK - Thursday 15th December 2022 - Environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing has become a very popular talking point as awareness around sustainability, social responsibility and ethics continues to grow. ESG investing offers investors a way of identifying and measuring a business's impact on society, the environment, and how transparent and accountable it is.

With 77% of investors now considering ethical investing (finder.com), CMC Invest is proud to launch a new feature that displays ESG data in its mobile investing app, for shares, exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and Investment Trusts. This latest addition to the app gives CMC Invest’s customers more insights to help them make investment decisions that suit their own investment journey, while providing the same frictionless and transparent investing experience as before.

The new feature gives customers valuable insights into how assets they might be considering investing in stack up in terms of ESG. For funds (ETFs and Investment Trusts), investors can now see an overall sustainability rating, ESG risk scores, and which contentious product areas investments within the fund are involved in, as a percentage. For shares, investors can see an overall ESG risk score, a controversy category rating, and which contentious product areas the company is and isn’t involved in. Areas covered range from animal testing to nuclear power.

The app includes useful definitions and explanations of all the terms in the ESG section, so customers who are still getting to grips with ESG can gain a deeper understanding of the data. In this way, CMC Invest customers are now able to invest in the assets that align best with their views on sustainability.
