London and New York – November 30, 2021 – A new report from Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: BR), a global Fintech leader, reveals assets in dedicated environmental, social, and governance (ESG) mutual funds, ETFs, institutional mandates, and private funds are on track to grow from $8 trillion today to as much as $30 trillion by the end of this decade. Asset managers stand to win up to $9 trillion of net new flows, with expanding opportunities through thematic strategies, climate transition and net zero solutions, and investments offering measurable sustainability impacts.
Net flows into ESG mutual funds and ETFs have risen dramatically this year to $577 billion in the nine months through September 2021, far surpassing the full-year total of $355 billion for 2020. The center of gravity in ESG investing continues to evolve from value and risk considerations towards sustainability impacts, putting greater demands on asset managers to show evidence of the results achieved.
“ESG strategies accounted for just 11% of overall mutual fund and ETF assets but captured 30% of inflows during the twelve months through September 2021” says Jag Alexeyev, Head of ESG Insights at Broadridge Financial Solutions. “While growth remains strong, the complexities and costs of ESG implementation have risen, and fund selectors have begun to ask harder questions, In addition, greenwashing has emerged as a key reputational risk that firms must address. Improving a manager’s sustainable investment capabilities, enhancing transparency, and amplifying communication of results can help establish credibility and strengthen client relationships.”
