Lee Coates OBE

Have you ever thought about what happens to your savings, investments and pension funds once you hand them over to a bank, building society, investment or pension company? You'd be shocked to discover they can be used to support things that not only compromise your personal values, but which also contribute to many of the social and environmental problems we see around us.

You have the choice to profit from climate change, weapons manufacture, child labour, animal exploitation and more, or whether to be part of making this world a better one for all - it's all about taking control of your money, making sure that who you hand it to has your values at the heart of what they do, and you don’t need to accept lower returns as a consequence.

Lee Coates OBE is Director of a locally-based national firm of financial advisers specialising in ethical and responsible investment. He has helped to develop some of the most innovative responsible investment options in the UK, launching unique ethical investment plans in Australia and the US. In 2011 Lee was awarded an OBE for services to ethical business and finance.
