PARTNERSHIPS AND COLLABORATION
A rising tide lifts all ships, and we need to work together to accelerate ethical investment from niche to norm. We can leverage our impact through shared opportunities.
Ethical Invest Group partners with organisations that are working to ultimately close the financing gap in achieving the global Sustainable Development Goals. This means their business model, services, and activities, support the allocation of capital towards a resilient economy, equitable society, and a regenerative environment.
Learn more about closing the financing gap on our About page here.
Eligible partners include fintechs, non-profits and think tanks, financial institutions and educators. The main driver for partnership is a shared vision to educate and advocate for sustainable investment.

OTHER COLLABORATION OPPORTUNITIES
Do you have a publicly available resource you believe financial advisers would learn from?
Alexandra Brown leads the Ethical Advice Accelerator. This comprehensive and CPD-accredited online program enhances a financial adviser’s client proposition by facilitating a deep understanding of ESG and sustainability. Advisers gain the skills to analyse and recommend responsible investment products, and the tools to confidently discuss client values and preferences.
The Ethical Advice Accelerator is filled with show-throughs of fund manager websites and sustainability reports. Advisers in the program are given links to publicly available resources and tools like impact calculators. To complement her own teachings, Alexandra provides members of the Accelerator with a curated selection of free mini courses, gathered from across the web. These courses cover topics like sustainability, the Sustainable Development Goals, and climate change.
“I have recently finished the Accelerator program and am in absolute awe of the tremendous amount of work done pulling it all together. It is like a one-stop-shop for getting your head around what's important to understand, what is an absolute must, and how you find all this information. And guess what? You don't really need to go too far because Alexandra pulled it all in one place, all together."
- Nataliya Dikovskaya, NASHAUS Consulting
The end result is an engaging and content-rich program that builds on the expertise of many specialists, masterfully pulled together into an organised platform. Advisers benefit from an increased scope of their learning, with real-life examples to deepen their understanding, and practical tools to assist their implementation.
“The thing I best enjoyed about the program, just like the advice process with clients, it's all about the stories. I really liked the examples of stories that Alexandra sprinkled throughout the course throughout the learning. It made it more interesting, more engaging and really brought the learnings home.”
What resources would be considered for inclusion in the Ethical Advice Accelerator?
