Guernsey Finance offers guidance to developing sustainable trust deeds


A report has been created by We Are Guernsey and Guernsey Green Finance, aiming to offer advice to people who want to invest sustainably.

Due to a growing trend towards sustainable finance and investment, pushed forward by a new generation, more and more people want to know that they are investing with environmentally conscious and sustainable companies.

The report focuses on trustees and their responsibility to act and invest in the best interests of the beneficiary or beneficiaries. The document has draft clauses aiming to show that sustainable investing can be compatible with any duties the trustee might have.

It’s just one example of how the process of investing sustainably can be made simpler.

Steps have been taken to try and remove any barriers to sustainable investing during discussions with the Guernsey Association of Trustees and STEP.

You can read the full report on the We Are Guernsey website.
