How ‘green’ investing could cost you a fortune in 2022

Britain’s highest dividend payers will be “sin stocks” in 2022, in a blow for green, income-seeking investors. 

The highest yielding stocks for 2022 will be miners Evraz, BHP and Rio Tinto, which boasted forecast yields of 17pc, 11pc and 10pc respectively, according to research compiled by the broker AJ Bell. 

They were closely followed by the tobacco companies Imperial Brands and British American Tobacco, whose dividend yields both exceeded 8pc. The average on the FTSE 100, an index of London’s largest listed companies, was 4pc. 

Russ Mould of AJ Bell said that this could affect income-seekers who did not want to invest in so-called “sin stocks”. 

“This may have ESG investors gnashing their teeth,” he said, referring to stock-pickers who screen companies based on their environmental, social and governance track records. “Especially as they may argue the firms are acting too slowly in their attempts to shift their business mix to more renewable sources of energy.” 

Financial services group M&G also had one of the highest forecast dividend yields in London, at 9pc.
