As interest in responsible investment reaches new heights, many of us want to know how to practice responsible investing - and what results investors can expect from it.
We’ve collaborated with EY to publish a new paper that reviews existing empirical evidence on how responsible investing affects returns.
Our analysis shows that applying ESG principles can deliver financial benefits, both in corporate performance and in reducing volatility. This is a significant finding and is backed up by the resilience of sustainable companies in the face of challenge, not least now with COVID-19.
The time feels right to take a fresh look at the evidence for ESG performance. We hope our paper will add depth to the global debate around responsible investing and help support your client conversations.
