Investors prioritise ESG factors

In a global investor study, Schroders spoke to 20,000 investors worldwide and comes to the conclusion that investors aim to find better long-term opportunities by complementing financial with sustainability analysis. Taking ESG factors in to account thereby helps investors to examine a company’s long-term growth prospects and ability to adapt to environmental changes. On average, investors hold ESG investments longer than standard investments and are likely to sell investments when their sustainability rating falls.
