A new study was done on investment patterns and relations to social entrepreneurship. The study found that eight out of 10 investors rank how companies approach human rights, equality and eradicating poverty just as important as yield in values-based investing.
The study also showed that investors aged under 40 were more likely to consider values when investing. Many see their investment choices to strong arm companies looking for capital into making a positive social and environmental contribution without sacrificing profits.
Investments range from restoring a pier at Clevedon, near Bristol, to helping local sports clubs or funding the opening of community shops and pubs.
