Helping to spread the word on responsible investment, we had a fantastic time working with ShareAction. This is an area incredibly close to our hearts at Ember Television. It shouldn’t be difficult to find out where your money is going if you invest in a pension fund. The people who run pension funds have a tremendous responsibility to make sure that people have a say over what they invest in. More than this though, they should provide easily accessible information about what savers will be investing in if they choose a certain fund.
If more pension fund providers opened up lines of communication with savers and provided information and choice, I think they’d be surprised at how many people would want to change what they were investing in. By campaigning for this, ShareAction can help give power to consumers, who can then have a real influence over the stewardship of companies.
