American ESG Investing Reaches $12 Trillion Assets, Says US SIF Foundation (Environmental Leader)

Investors in the United States consider environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors across $12 trillion of professionally managed assets, a new report from the US SIF Foundation concluded. That represents a 38% increase since 2016.

The Report on US Sustainable, Responsible and Impact Investing Trends 2018 shows, through surveying and research undertaken this year, that the total US-domiciled assets under management using sustainable, responsible, and impact (SRI) strategies grew from $8.7 trillion at the start of 2016 to $12.0 trillion at the start of 2018.

“This represents 26% — or 1 in 4 dollars — of the $46.6 trillion in total US assets under professional management,” according to the report published by the foundation supporting US SIF, an organization whose members include investment management and advisory firms, mutual fund companies, asset owners, financial planners, community investing organizations, and nonprofits.
