Sustainable funds attracts $26bn of net inflows worldwide in Q1 2019

Thursday, May 23, 2019

Laxman Pai, Opalesque Asia:

Sustainable, responsible, and impact investment funds continue to grow rapidly, attracting $26bn of net inflows worldwide during the first quarter of 2019.

2018 saw a record $76bn inflow and funds gain $102bn of inflows in the 15 months through March 2019, said a new report by Impactvesting LLC.

Product development and innovation play an important role in driving the expansion, with new funds capturing 40% of inflows to such strategies last year.

"Responsible investments now exceed $1.3tn in assets through registered investment products," says Jag Alexeyev, founder of Impactvesting LLC.

"Their remarkable progress shines in contrast to net redemptions of $0.3tn from all actively-managed funds worldwide last year. Responsible investment funds will attract at least $0.5tn of new money during the next five years and serve as a beacon for active investment managers," he added.

Europe remains the center of activity with more than 85% of the global responsible investment fund business through both local products and cross-border UCITS, as detailed in a new Impactvesting report, ESG Innovations: The Rise Of Sustainable, Responsible, And Impact Investment Funds.

Many of the highest cash flow products reflect intensifying demand for impact investments, which seek to generate competitive financial returns along with a positive and measurable impact across environmental,social, and governance (ESG) dimensions.
