With the stockmarket at a five year low, you might be considering investing in an ISA or a unit trust. But if it's important for you to know that your money is invested in a socially responsible way, then Legal and General's Ethical Unit Trust and ISA could be for you.

Like a traditional index-tracking fund, the ethical unit trust tracks the FTSE 350 Index. But the ISA excludes businesses that don't meet certain ethical criteria. The ethical ISA only invests in companies that follow a range of ethical and environmental guidelines specially developed with Ethical Investment Research Services after consulting with a broad cross-section of UK investors like you.

The ethical ISA for example excludes companies involved in animal testing, intensive farming, arms production, or which operate in countries where there are human rights abuses.

You can set up an Ethical ISA with Legal and General quickly and easily online from just £50 a month or with a £500 lump sum.
