In the chart below, you can see the difference in opinion between all the asset classes Preqin covers, across investors already having an ESG policy, to those with no future plans to implement one.
Some investors may have investment policies in place, but what about fund managers? An increasing number of fund managers are also choosing to establish an ESG policy. What is causing this trend?
In Preqin's 2021 Investor Outlook, 79% of the respondents surveyed stated that fund managers establish ESG policies in order to satisfy investor demands. Meeting industry standards or best practices was seen as a secondary driver, with 66% citing this as a reason for ESG policy adoption among fund managers. The chart below shows other key reasons for an ESG policy, such as risk, or moral imperative.
