A few weeks ago I posted a piece about Virgin’s Climate Change ISA.
Today, Fred Pearce, writing on the Guardian’s website, has written a piece based on the blog. Here’s a link to it.
Some of the comments underneath Fred’s article are fairly wild.
They make interesting reading.
I had one clarification to make from my side: I did read the marketing blurb about the fund before investing. But the real information is really well hidden off the main site.
Commentators can fairly state that I should have dug it out beforehand. But I would ask in response: Which of you reads all the small print relating to everything you buy?
That’s my point: 95% of consumers won’t dig for the information, so marketing should be more honest than is the case here with Virgin’s Climate Change ISA.
