The question:

What's the biggest issue for investors today? (terrorism, governance, technology, interest rates ...)

Risk. Its always been an element but, since the losses of 2000, investors, advisors and regulators who were chasing the dragon now realise that risk is more important to them than achieving unusual returns. Yes we all want to be rich, but those of us that work for a living think it far more important not to lose what we've worked for. For many they are also concerned they they do not exacerbate inequality, poverty and pollution. These so called enlightened people are most interested in our approach.

Principal features are outlined here.
