Investors are demanding more choice when it comes to Social Responsible Investing. This term is often used interchangeably with ESG (as in environment, social and governance) investing.
Whatever term you use, this is no short-term investing fad. The demand for sustainable corporate strategies and new green investing vehicles is having a transformational impact on global capital markets.
Global ESG assets under management are expanding at a 15% clip and are on track to exceed $53 trillion by 2025, according to an analysis by Bloomberg Intelligence.
Exchange-traded fund ESG assets are expected to surpass $190 billion by the end of 2021 and are powering about 13% of global ETF asset growth.
Growing public awareness about the impact of climate change and environmental threats like the Covid-19 pandemic have contributed to the growth in ESG. The European Union and the United States are making government investments into green technology.
Just as importantly, though, sustainable investment products are proving that they can offer competitive, sometimes even market-beating returns.
At Interactive Advisors, we want to empower you to invest in the companies that align with your sustainability goals and offer easy, transparent and low-cost ways for investors to express their values in their portfolios.
Our Social Responsibility Investing platform offers 13 portfolio strategies, all of which have been available for more than a year as of July 20, that represent the green investing landscape.
Waterfront of Options
You can invest in companies focused on reducing greenhouse gas emissions or developing alternative energy sources.
Other portfolios focus on social justice goals such as fair labor, gender and racial equality, as well as LGBTQ inclusion.
We’ve also developed smart beta strategies that take into account ESG factors while aiming to deliver competitive return and risk characteristics of large and mid-cap stocks.
Our technology gives you the power to also exclude the stocks of companies whose business practices you don’t support.
We can help you build custom indexes that exclude tobacco or fossil fuel companies or businesses that engage in animal testing or gun manufacturing.
