Asset Owners Increasingly Rely on Sustainability Indicators

Morgan Stanley’s Sustainable Signals report finds that asset managers are increasingly relying on sustainability indicators.

The survey polled 118 public and corporate pensions, endowments, foundations, sovereign wealth entities, insurance companies and other large asset owners worldwide and gathered insights about trends, motivations, challenges and implementation approaches in sustainable investing. By rounding out the sustainable investing landscape with the views of asset owners, this work builds on our previous Sustainable Signals studies focused on individual investors and asset managers.

They found: 84% are pursuing or considering pursuing ESG integration in their investment process. 60% of those began doing so in the last four years. And 78% seek to align with the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals.
