Moneywise users are divided on the merits of investing in ethical, sustainable and socially responsible funds.

The results of our ‘Are you an ethical investor?’ poll reveal a split between those who aren’t interested in ethical investing (52%) and those who are (44%) – even if it’s not something they currently do.

Nearly one in three (28%) who responded said they don’t invest in such funds because they believe returns will be better in other sectors.

A further quarter (24%) of people who voted said they don’t invest in ethical funds because they have no interest in this sector.

However, two in 10 (21%) said they do invest in ethical, sustainable and socially responsible funds and will continue to do so, while a further 23% said that while they don’t currently invest in this sector they are interested in doing so.

For the full results, see the pie chart below.
