Sustainable investing is ‘low priority’ for many allocators (Investment & Pensions Europe)

Sustainable investing is a low priority issue for most institutional investors, according to a survey by Schroders.

The UK-listed asset manager polled 650 investors around the world running $24trn (€20.6trn) and found that, although they expected sustainable investing to become a bigger issue in the next few years, it was not currently a high priority for most.

Almost a third (32%) of those questioned by Schroders said that how sustainable an investment was had “little to no influence” on the decision to buy.

Factors such as a manager’s track record, expected return and risk tolerance were all more important factors, investors said.
