Global sustainability challenges such as flood risk and sea-level rise, privacy and data security, demographic shifts and regulatory pressures are introducing new concerns for investors.
More than 3 in 4 people in Ireland are concerned about the impact of climate change on the environment according to recent research from Aviva Ireland and more of us are doing something about it.
A MORE AWARE INVESTOR IS EMERGING
A growing body of studies suggest that millennials are asking more of their investments. Over the next two to three decades, the millennial generation could put between $15 trillion and $20 trillion into U.S.-domiciled Environmental, Social & Good Governance (ESG) tilted investments, which would roughly double the size of the current U.S. equity market.
