Is there any evidence that investors are looking at Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) factors when considering their investment choices? That is what a recent member survey created by the Chartered Financial Analyst Institute and the Investor Responsibility Research Center Institute (IRRC) suggests.
Key survey findings are summarized in ESG Issues in Investing: Investors Debunk the Myths ESG Issues. Notably, 63% of survey respondents consider ESG in the decision-making process to help manage investment risks, 44% say that their clients or investors demand it and 38% agree that ESG performance is a proxy for management quality.
