The number of environmental, social and governance or sustainability focused ETFs has grown dramatically in the past two years, making it difficult to chose the right one. But there is a way.
In 2019, only 10 per cent of flows into European ETFs were into funds with ESG or sustainability characteristics, but by 2021 that percentage had grown to more than 50 per cent – a dramatic change.
The number of ESG-focused ETFs has also more than doubled, according to Morningstar, with more than 900 available globally in early 2022 compared to around 370 at the end of 2019.
And while choice is good, especially in a market where investors have a range of values and priorities, we are then presented with the challenge of how to choose.
