Foster Denovo research highlights 60% of investors are not aware of ESG

A new report from Foster Denovo -“Investing with the Dynamic Portfolios: The latest research surrounding investors’ opinions on ESG investing”- has found that six in ten (60%) investors are not aware of ESG investing despite a shift in public concerns about the environment.

Advisers play an important role in giving investors the knowledge and confidence to invest sustainably. 70% of non-ESG investors had not had a discussion with a financial adviser about sustainable investing. Of those who had invested using ESG factors, 72% have worked with a financial adviser.

Declan McAndrew, Head of Investment Research at Foster Denovo, said: “Advisers are in a key position to offer guidance and clarity, helping to dispel some of the myths and get more people onboard with using their savings to have a positive contribution to the planet. Interest in sustainability is only going to increase, and making sure clients have the right information available to make an informed decision that is best for them should be the driving force behind every conversation.”
