Got a little money – lump sum or recurrent – you want a decent return from, but you want put to good use, avoiding unwise and ethically unsound investment? Or, maybe, you find ordinary credit lines difficult to access and want a responsible lender? Then read on…
Our friends at Sustainable Hayfield have organised an evening focused on ethical finance – the use of money to achieve commercial returns via ethically and environmentally sound practices. It’s at The Royal Hotel, Thursday July 2nd, from 8.00p.m.
They’ve managed to get senior people from some key financial institutions to come to Hayfield, to make presentations on what they do, their ethical stance, the products and advice they offer – and take questions from audience members. They include The Co-operative Bank, Investing Ethically (nationally-renowned independent ethical advisers with a deep commitment to ethical financial planning, linked to Quakers and Business) and the Manchester and High Peak Credit Union. And the event will be chaired by a staff member from Ethical Consumer magazine, based in Manchester.
Laurie from Sustainable Hayfield says, “It’s quite a coup to get these all to come. We’re fairly sure there’s not been anything like it in Hayfield before! Many of our supporters may have considered – at least in principle – about how their investments might be more ethically-based but maybe haven’t known where to go for advice and information. This event may open doors, and answer questions, for all of us. We hope very much you’ll join us!”
The evening follows their AGM, being held at 7.30p.m., to which you’re also invited. It’s very brief and unfussy. If you like what you know about Sustainable Hayfield and want to get more closely involved/help shape their activities, contact their Chair, Cath Moss (firstname.lastname@example.org).
