It is a common misconception that in economic downturns, investor interest in sustainable investing stifles. It is often viewed that when the market declines, investors must resort to traditional, defensive strategies. In light of global environmental and social awareness movements - namely, climate change, gender inequality, financial exclusion, consumers and investors are prioritizing sustainability:
- Morningstar reports that in the first three months of 2020, 70% of sustainable equity funds showed returns in the top halves of their broad-based peer group.
- Of those, 44% scored within the top quartile. By early March, ESG-aware companies outperformed other stocks by up to 5.7%, per HSBC.
Economic, social and corporate governance are the new currency.
ESG investing involves researching and factoring in environmental, social, and governance issues, in addition to the usual financials, when evaluating potential stocks.
Aneuvia works with clients to reassess their ESG footprint and operations to increase value among investors. In our latest whitepaper "The Positive Impact of Active Ownership: Finance for Good", we’re seeing many individuals, especially millennials and Generation X, are embracing a socially and environmentally responsible lifestyle.
Impact investors have started to more intentionally bring a sustainability and diversity lens to investing. Now is the time to build off this momentum, and for businesses to ask questions like, “Are we building a first-class diverse organization? Are we operating in a financially-sound and environmentally-friendly manner?” At Aneuvia, we are committed to driving progress on diversity and sustainability as a ‘catalyst’ through our partnerships with individuals and organizations.
