Got DSs voucher this morning, would like to put it into a stakeholder/shares account but would like to be sure that his money isn't being traded against arms, tobacco, alcohol etc. Is there anywhere I can put it where I will know what it is being used for?

Think the answer is no, but gonna put it in the CIS as the best of a bad bunch!

CIS? We are mulling over what to do with dd's, anchovies, and would like to go a similar route if possible.
Aren't the Friendly Societies usually ethical investors or do they just trade on their cuddly names?

I like the sound of the stakeholder account, but there are so many providers to choose from. I don't know which to choose. I wonder if anyone has any advice on any? I don't do "money matters", am useless.

I'm not certain, but check out the Co-op, they tend to be environmentally friendly and politically responsible with regard to their banking/investment policies.

I'm not sure they're offering an eligible account Tarantula, but will look into that. Thanks

Or even Tamula. Too many threads, not enough work! Sorry

The CIS one is the Co-ops, just launched
