Responsible investment: is it the future?

The past year or so has seen record amounts of money pour into funds which consider environmental, social and governance issues. According to the Investment Association, UK savers put almost £1bn a month on average into ESG funds in 2020.

ESG funds under management now totals more than £85bn, growing 66 per cent during 2020 compared to 7 per cent growth across funds overall.

But is this growth a blip or a trend? In this hub, sponsored by Royal London, we will examine what the future holds for responsible investment, how advisers can integrate it into their businesses and how to distinguish between genuine ESG investing and greenwashing.
