With investment, your capital is at risk.


Socially responsible investing

What’s in a name?

Ethical investing, sustainable investing, green investing - these terms are used interchangeably in the industry. But we don’t always think it’s clear what these labels actually mean for your investments.

Looking beyond the labels, we're using industry-leading data to give you a real understanding of what your money's doing.

We call our approach socially responsible investing (SRI).

Radically transparent

Our investment team continuously scores every portfolio for environmental, social and governance principles, using thousands of data points across key ESG issues.

How it works

We want to empower you to make more conscious investment decisions. So we've worked with MSCI, a leader in ESG research and analytics, to give each portfolio a range of scores.

This gives you the best possible sense of how each portfolio aligns with your values.

“We give you a real sense of how your portfolio stacks up”

Chief investment officer

What does this cost you?

This is how our socially responsible investment style compares.

Remember, with investment your capital is at risk. The value of your portfolio could go down as well as up and you may get back less than you invest.

Our SRI track record goes back to September 2018, when we launched our SRI portfolios and signed up to the Principles of Responsible Investment. We believe in transparency, through the ups and down of the market, so you can explore for yourself the returns for each of our 10 risk-based SRI, fully managed portfolios below.

Nutmeg monthly returns shown in green. Nutmeg daily returns, shown in grey, to show the relative volatility of the portfolios.

*The annualised figure is the return since inception expressed as a compound annual rate. For example, a portfolio with an annualised return of 6% corresponds to an actual return of 19.1% over three years (rather than 18% as you might expect) due to the effect of compounding.

How are Nutmeg’s returns calculated?

The past performance is an average of customer returns based on real Nutmeg customer data. The returns are calculated after Nutmeg management fees – see our fee page for more information. Returns also account for investment fund costs and the effect of market spread, after tax. Dividends have been included on an accrual basis.
