Why you should consider sustainable investing
Sustainable investing means including not just financial factors but also environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria when you analyze an investment. It rests on the idea that companies are more likely to succeed and generate a strong return if they provide value to all their stakeholders from employees to customers to the broader community.
With increasing attention and emphasis on sustainability issues related to public health, climate change, and social justice, ESG factors can help you understand an investment’s risk, opportunities, and social impact more holistically.
Sustainable funds outperformed comparable traditional funds and helped reduce investment risk during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, a recent study by Morgan Stanley found.
Financial institutions are integrating sustainable practices into their portfolios in record numbers, making ESG investing more accessible to individuals than ever before. In fact, 80% of institutional asset owners have actively integrated ESG factors into their investment process.
