Nutmeg launches 10-strong socially responsible range

Nutmeg launches 10-strong socially responsible range

Nutmeg has made a concerted push into the environmental, social and governance (ESG) market through the launch of a 10-strong socially responsible managed portfolio range. 

The portfolios will invest in line with the UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investment, including negative screens that endeavour to support business with a positive impact.  

Nutmeg will charge investors a management fee of 0.75% up to £100,000 and 0.35% beyond that for the portfolios. 

Alongside this, Nutmeg intends to provide ESG scores for its entire investment range.

The digital wealth manager will rank portfolios on issues covering corporate tax, measures to guard supply chain problems and the investment’s carbon footprint. 

All Nutmeg portfolio scores will be calculated using thousands of data points collected by MSCI.

‘Whether it’s ethical, green, sustainable, ESG or socially responsible, it isn’t always clear what these labels mean for investments or investors,’ Nutmeg's chief investment officer Shaun Port (pictured) said.

‘There’s very little information for people who want to know if their investments are in line with their values; be they reducing carbon emissions, gender equality on boards or a business’ management of their data. We’re changing that.’

Eric Moen, managing director of MSCI ESG Research, who is providing the ESG scoring for Nutmeg, said: ‘We are happy to be working with Nutmeg, to respond to growing demand from retail investors for more transparency and reporting on ESG metrics.’

Nutmeg recently began piloting a financial advice service, which offers a one-on-one review with a professional adviser and tailored financial advice with personal recommendations.
