A Change in Momentum
In recent years, more and more clients have expressed concerns about the impact their investments have on the world around us, especially with the hit of the recent COVID-19 pandemic.
While accepting their need for a return on their investments in order to provide for themselves, they often have other objectives in that:
- They do not want to feel they are adding to the damage done.
- They would like to see others benefiting in some way from their investments.
The pandemic has brought a welcome positive interest in our world – from an appreciation for cleaner air, to increased admiration for frontline workers. It could also prove a major turning point in the way many look to invest, altering not only society’s values, but also our moral responsibilities. The demand to “do something good” becomes an important factor we shouldn’t ignore.
Therefore, a focus on the companies that we invest in is likely to become more predominant. Something that lends itself well to these values is ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance), a coined phrase used to evaluate the behaviour of companies, as well as determining their future financial performance. The ESG factors explore the ethical, social and corporate governance values companies hold.
