Friday, October 13, 2017

Impact investing is one of the hottest topics on advisors’ radar screens, with studies showing expanding interest among key client groups, rapid growth in assets under management and widespread adoption among investors seeking to align their portfolios with their personal values.

According to US SIF, the forum for sustainable and responsible investment, which produces a biannual report on sustainable, responsible and impact-investing trends, nearly $9 trillion was invested in sustainable and impact investments at the start of 2016, an increase of 33 percent over 2014. These assets now account for more than one out of every five dollars under professional management in the United States.
