Sustainable investing
Doing good or doing well?
You can do both with sustainable investing
The world is changing, and
so are we.
Climate change, biodiversity loss, hunger, food waste, plastic pollution — as we watch the window of opportunity to create a sustainable world narrowing rapidly, we begin to really care about environmental and social issues. This is reflected in our increasing interest in values-based investments.
According to the latest research, 95% of millennials now express interest in socially responsible investing. It is important for them to drive real change by investing in companies classified as sustainable or responsible, those that literally «promote good over evil.»
However, some still believe making a positive difference in the world comes with a financial trade-off, so while adoption is growing, it still does not keep pace with interest.
Why it is high time you believe one doesn't have to choose between their wealth and their values?
Sustainable investing has entered the mainstream and is here to stay
More than 8 in 10 U.S. individual investors (and 9 in 10 Millennial investors) now express interest in sustainable investing.
Investing sustainably does not require a financial trade-off
The latest study shows there is no financial tradeoff in the returns of sustainable funds and traditional funds. No consistent or statistically significant difference in total returns exists between ESG-focused and traditional mutual funds and ETFs.
Sustainable funds may offer lower market risk
New research shows that sustainable funds experienced a 20% smaller downside deviation than traditional funds, a consistent and statistically significant finding.
ESG investing provides superior returns to passive investing
An analysis of more than 2,000 empirical studies dating back to the 1970s showed that about 90 per cent of the studies suggested that ESG investing provides superior returns to passive investing.
ESG companies show better stock market performance and profitability
The results of one of the recent studies suggest that firms making investments and improving their performance on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues exhibit better stock market performance and profitability in the future than their counterparts.
