Latin American investors reveal growing importance of ESG/SRI metrics

Thursday, May 30, 2019

Laxman Pai, Opalesque Asia:

Environmental, social and governance (ESG)/ Socially responsible investing (SRI) appear to be gaining in influence for Latin American equities investors in tune with global trends.

More investors are placing value on various facets of ESG/SRI investing and many investors expect that the influence over their investing decisions will continue growing in the future, said 2019 Latin America Research Team Insights by Institutional Investor.

The percentage of investing decisions that involve ESG/SRI components has gone up from 27% to 31% as reported by Latin American investors.

Responding investors expect this percentage to continue to increase significantly in the future. Indeed, investors in 2019 stated that they expect nearly half of their investing decisions to involve ESG/SRI components in the next two years.

Current and expected involvement of ESG/SRI components in investing decisions does not appear to be directly correlated with firm assets under management.

Indeed, while investors at firms with less than $150 million in AUM currently report 28% of their investing decisions involve ESG/SRI components, they expect this to increase to 50% in the next two years - the second highest expectation.

Only global consistency in reporting saw a decrease in the investors who find it to be an important ESG/SRI investing facet. In fact, 11% fewer investors value this facet of ESG/SRI investing in 2019 over the previous year.
