Global Sustainable Investment Alliance (GSIA) report published

The Global Sustainable Investment Alliance (the international network of SIFs, that includes friends at UKSIF and Eurosif) has this week published its biennial global market report covering the period 2016-18

The report shows substantial growth in sustainable and responsible investment assets under management across all areas – with the exception of the EU as a result of fund re-classifications following the strengthening of regulation in some countries.

Some of the key points of the report are:

  • Sustainable investment now accounts for over $30 trillion worldwide.
  • Negative exclusions remain the lead worldwide strategy – followed by ESG Integration and Responsible Ownership (Stewardship)
  • Retail investors share of this market has risen to 25% (up from 11% in 2012)

You can download the full GSIA (Global Sustainable Investment Alliance) report here.
