Elton has contributed to a review from LGBT Great called A New Frontier: LGBT+ Lens Investing for the 2020s. He is urging advisers who wish to invest in sustainable funds to consider LGBT+ inclusive companies.
The report, sponsored by St James’ Place and Northern Trust, suggests there is a big opportunity for the financial planning and investment industry in recognising the needs of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
Elton said: ”We are delighted to see the investment industry stepping up its leadership for equality around the world. Our community still faces many challenges and we must work together to increase support, acceptance and progress.
”This report highlights how the industry can influence the LGBT+ diversity and equality agenda within both corporations and broader society.”
LGBT Great is a global membership organisation specialist in developing diversity and inclusion within the investment and savings industry.
