Europe's wealthy warm to sustainable investments -study


Sustainable investments by Europe’s wealthiest investors has increased by nearly 60% over the past two years, compared to an 18% increase in overall European high net worth wealth over the same period.

Eurosif Executive Director François Passant said the value proposition of sustainable investment and impact investing, combining both financial interests with sustainability concerns, make the strategies a valuable fit with any HNWI investment portfolio.

"The fact that many HNWIs who have tested sustainable investments are shifting more assets into these strategies reflects that. This should be no surprise, even in terms of great market uncertainty, as the effects of these strategies are magnified over time and align well with the long term perspective and wealth preservation objectives of HNWIs."
