 Ethical Finance: Merging Profit&Purpos

This September join the ethical finance movement and build a more equitable and inclusive fiancial sector. 

Two days of conferences organized by the Global Ethical Finance Forum, to be held on September 13 and 14 at the RBS Conference Center in Edinburgh, Scotland (the forum will take place under the patronage of the Scottish Government). 

The global ethical finance industry constitutes approximately USD 22.89 trillion worth of assets under mangement, an increase of 25% from 2014. However, this is seen in institutions and assets within developed markets. Ethical finance is on trak to developing its global value proposition. However, catalyzing the wider adoption requires concerted efforts to build mainingful dialogue between main areas of ethical finance: one segment that integrates environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors, and Islamic finance whih is espected to rise from USD 2 trillion to USD 3.5 trillion by 2021. There is a unique opportunity for ethical finance players in developed markets to connect with the Islamic/faith-based financial sector which enjoys a strong foothold in Muslim-majority emerging markets.
