The latest annual report on ethical, green and social investment funds at the retail level across Europe from Vigeo, the leading European rating agency evaluating corporate responsibility, reveals that the SRI retail fund market continued to grow in 2015 (Ethical Investment Advice).
The European Ethical and Socially Responsible Funds market posted an 8% increase to almost $149bn in assets in management (AUM) over the previous year.
While the European market continued to display “rapid growth” according to Vigeo Italy, which produced the findings for socially responsible investing in conjunction with fund analyst and data provider Morningstar. The figures represents just 1.7% of the overall retail funds in the market. Still, growth revealed in Vigeo’s last three annual studies since 2013 has ranged between 8% and 18%.
Fouad Benseddick, Vigeo’s Director of Methodology, commenting said: “SRI continues to represent a form of investment that is dynamic and a forward looking solution. The number of funds, AUM and players engaged continue to show growth, which confirms the capacity of SRI to resist the crisis”.
