The First AIM-Focused IHT Service Offering a Socially Responsible Option in the Business Relief Market
  • Launched in March 2021 in response to growing investor demand and in particular, an increasing appetite for sustainable investing in the tax efficient space
  • Investors in the Service can now opt for the following portfolio options for an ESG overlay:
    • Responsible Dividend Focus Portfolio
    • Responsible Growth Focus Portfolio
  • The Responsible Portfolio Options follow Unicorn’s company-wide Sustainable Investment Policy and goes further to remove businesses with revenues that are derived from excluded activities, such as weapons and gambling
  • Unicorn’s UK small and mid-cap specialism, as well as their philosophy of conducting all research (ESG and otherwise) in-house, allows them to translate their robust Responsible Investment Policy into the Service’s AIM stock portfolios.
