Ethical portfolio: early outperformance from our ‘good’ line-up

It has been three months since we presented our initial selections for the new Money Observer ethical portfolio, and the time has flown by. “May you live in interesting times,” goes the apocryphal Chinese curse; in this first update, we review market developments over a very ‘interesting’ period, explore what these have meant for returns from the portfolio, and assess how its performance compares with that of markets in general.
