Institutional investors are increasingly recognising the potential for ESG (environmental, social and governance) factors – such as climate risk and poor human rights performance – to adversely impact the valuation and financial performance of the companies they invest in.

At the same time, consumer demand for responsible investments is surging, especially from the Millennial generation (Bloomberg). Regulation is emerging, particularly in the EU, and the influence of initiatives such as the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) and the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) continues to grow.

As a result, capital flows into ESG funds are accelerating and asset managers are under increasing pressure to integrate ESG considerations into their investment approaches.

ESG challenges

Yet, as the pressure grows, asset managers face multiple challenges such as:

  • a complex landscape of ESG focus areas
  • differing expectations from institutional investors
  • the likelihood of new regulation and uncertainty over its form
  • a confusing array of inconsistent ESG data
  • an absence of standard ESG terms, metrics and reporting frameworks
  • a lack of consensus on the effects of ESG strategies on financial returns
