2020 Recession and Dividends

After the COVID pandemic, the UK recession is now official, and with the collapse of dividends, plus the uncertainty of BREXIT, our Members Forum argues now is the opportunity to DIVEST from many traditional investments.

Many major funds now recognise the Climate Crisis, and are divesting, including the government backed NEST (National Employment Savings Trust) with nine million members which is the most popular pension fund in the country.
