ESG Tracking Study H2 2021

This report digs deep into the world of ESG – what it means, how the views of investors are changing and how platforms, investment houses and financial advisers need to adapt.

Key Findings

  • ESG or ethical/impact/sustainable comes up in one-fifth of client conversations, up three-fold since 2019.
  • The overwhelming majority (80%) of financial advice professionals now expect to see a continued increase in assets invested in these funds and solutions; rising from 70% a year ago.
  • Only 6% of financial advice professionals say they do not include a question in the KYC on ESG, ethical, impact or sustainable investing. This is down from 17% two years ago.
  • Advisers’ confidence is highest in recommending ESG solutions to clients.
