Women are leading the change for Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) investing in the U.S. & Canada amid growing demand for responsible investing solutions.

 

A recent study shows that responsible investing, Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) is gaining strong attention. Women are leading the change for ESG investing and are more likely to have a positive viewpoint toward this growing investment trend.

 

The study found that 74% of women were interested in increasing their share of ESG investments in their current portfolios and were significantly more likely than men to have an interest in learning more about ESG investing. While the survey revealed that women are leading the change in ESG investing, more than half of male respondents (53%) also expressed interest in increasing the share of ESG in their current portfolio. Corporate ethics, regulatory compliance followed by transparency were the most important of governance elements for clients.

 

The study also revealed almost 90% of clients, would turn to their financial advisors to find out more about ESG investing, motioning the need for advisors to be ready to guide current and future generations of investors on topics around responsible investing and how they can integrate different ESG considerations into an overall investment portfolio and long-term sustainability plan.

 

The results of this study support the growing industrywide interest for ESG investing. ESG investing was among the most popular responsible investing strategies, accounting for a third of all managed assets in the US.
