Long before ethical investing evolved into the high-profile niche it is today, Brigid Benson was looking at ways of investing money that would not compromise her moral stance. The catalyst came when she worked in London for a group campaigning for human rights in Central America in the 1980s, then founded her business specialising in ethical investment "The GÆIA Partnership".

 

In her presentation, Benson described how she stumbled upon ethical investment in the late 80’s, changed career track & then set up her business specialising in ethical investment, in the early days of what is now a huge & growing sector.
