Schroder's 2021 Global Investor Study Phase II
A survey of 23,000 investors across the globe which measures investors’ views on sustainability and ESG investing.
The events of the pandemic have put the spotlight on the social and environmental impacts of basic activities such as air travel, while heightening the need for businesses to act more responsibly and for issues like climate change to be dealt with more urgently. But how is this increase in consciousness influencing behaviors and attitudes toward sustainable investing?
More people are investing sustainably, with awareness having grown over the past four years. However, there are reservations about the returns offered by sustainable funds. These fears continue to act as a barrier to more people choosing sustainable investments, even if the levels of risk and diversification were the same.
