Looking Beyond Profit argues against the common belief that maximisation of wealth is the primary concern of ordinary small shareholders when they make their share-buying decisions. This novel in-depth study of small shareholders provides both theoretical and empirical insights into their personal values and attitudes to corporate social responsibility (CSR) which are major influences on the type of companies that they invest in. In other words, financial risk and return are far from being the only factors that determine small shareholders' investment decisions. The book will be of great interest to scholars and students of corporate governance as well as corporate investment managers and ethical finance advisers.
