Sustainable ETF Assets Jump but Most Funds Fall Short on UN Goals
New tool developed with Unctad aims to counter practice of ‘green washing’-
Assets under management in ESG ETFs jumped three-fold from just under $59bn at the end of 2019 to just over $174bn at the close of 2020, a rise of nearly 200 per cent, according to data from TrackInsight, the Financial Times’ data partner for the ETF Hub.
The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (Unctad) has collaborated with TrackInsight to produce a tool that helps investors to search for ETFs that are directly aligned with SDGs.
