Our three Growth Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) portfolios have an 80%, 90% and 100% equity allocation respectively. They are suitable for people with a medium-to-high risk tolerance. If you intend to hold your investments for the longer term, can bear market fluctuations with relative ease and understand that there can be periods of poor performance, these portfolios are for you.
Below you can see how our 90% equity portfolio has performed over a number of 12 month periods.
Following the fall in investment markets over the first three months of 2020, this portfolio is currently showing a loss of -1.84% since it was launched on 16th January 2018 to 31st March 2020.
This gives an average annualised performance of -0.82% to the end of last quarter.

To put these figures in context, it's useful to compare them against an appropriate benchmark. To do this, we've used the ARC Equity Risk Index which illustrates the average performance of our peer group across a number of risk levels. Over 50 investment services in the UK contribute to the ARC, including Barclays, UBS, Charles Stanley & Rathbones, making it a great tool for analysing how similar offerings have performed.
The average underlying fund fees for our SRI portfolios is 0.26% per annum.
