As an emerging market many of the sub-sectors within ethical finance operate within their own silos and this fragmentation not only limits cross-sectoral business to business dialogue it also makes it difficult for general public to understand and engage with the sector.
The EFH concept is intended to bridge this gap by offering a one-stop-shop for organisations and individuals interested, or operating, in the ethical finance sector.
Scotland has a distinguished history in financial services that dates back over 300 year and is one of Europe’s leading financial centres.
Development of the EFH
The concept emerged during the award-winning Edinburgh Ethical Finance Round Table series.
The EFH will offer a physical platform which will act as a catalyst to enhance the ethical finance sector locally and promote effective engagement in the sector beyond Scotland.
