Smile and Fair Investment Company top the tree in a new mystery shopping exercise to identify the best fund supermarkets for green and ethical stocks and shares ISAs. In the National Ethical Investment Week (NEIW) Five Star Ratings, Hargreaves Lansdown and Interactive Investor are awarded four star ratings.

Investors can now choose funds that will make a positive impact, such as those that focus on cleaner energy and health.
