"Nearly 80% of asset managers and asset owners incorporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into their decision-making, according to a survey from BNP Paribas Securities Services. The report, titled ’Great Expectations: ESG – What′s next for asset owners and managers,’ found that among the asset owners incorporating ESG, 46% plan to invest at least half of their assets into funds that incorporate ESG by 2019."
[COMMENTARY] This survey indicates tremendous growth for ESG based institutional investing strategies in the next few years. It’s certainly a positive for all ethical investors.
