Sustainable investing and all things ESG

Insights, guides and fund information to aid your client discussions

What is sustainable investment?

Sustainable investing describes strategies that invest on the basis of fulfilling and/or delivering on specific sustainability outcomes. There are many terms used to describe sustainable investing, such as responsible, socially responsible, green, ethical and impact investing. Whatever term you may use, there is no denying that investing with a conscience – where Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors are important considerations – is no longer a niche area. Many more clients are now taking an active interest in just how their money is invested.
