NGO: British financial institutions complicit in Israeli war crimes

In July 2017, War on Want (WoW) published a report claiming that UK-based banks and investment companies are complicit in Israeli war crimes against Palestinians. The financial institutions cited in the report have allegedly invested in defence companies known to provide equipment to the Israeli military.

Those companies include: Aviva; Barclays; HSBC; Investec; Legal & General Investment Management; Prudential; Schroders; Standard Life; BAE Systems; Boeing; Caterpillar; Cobham; Elbit Systems; General Dynamics; GKN; HP Enterprise; Lockheed Martin; Meggitt; Motorola Solutions; Northrop Grumman; QinetiQ; Raytheon; Rolls-Royce; Ultra Electronics; United Technologies. We received responses from: Aviva; BAE Systems; HP Enterprise; Legal & General Investment Management; Motorola Solutions. You can read the responses in full below.
