Finance theory conventionally focuses on risk and return as the factors relevant to the construction of investment portfolios. But there is evidence of a growing number of investors who wish to incorporate moral or social concerns in their decision-making. Using principal components analysis, this paper attempts to infer possible ‘non-financial’ dimensions of utility functions by considering the preferences of 125 ‘ethical investors’.
