When it comes to planning for retirement that means thinking not only of the personal legacy we want to leave for our family, but also the part we can play to make the world a better place for generations to come.

And that trend is continuing to fuel the growth in ESG (environment, social and governance), and Sharia-compliant investing (sometimes referred to in terms of Islamic finance or Halal investing).
