Although assets globally in environmental, social and governance focused funds were down 12% to $841 billion at the end of March, according to the latest Morningstar sustainable fund flows report, that was better than assets in the overall global fund universe, which were down 18%. Further, inflows to global sustainable funds were $45.6 billion, 比较 to outflows of $384.7 billion in the overall fund universe.
欧洲继续主导太空, 根据报告， with 76% of the 3,297 total funds and 82% of the assets ($684 billion). However, the United States, with more than $119 billion in assets (14% of global sustainable assets), had flows of $10.5 billion, “easily eclipsing the previous quarterly record set in 2019′s fourth quarter,” states the report. Also, that jump accounted for a higher proportion of all global sustainable inflows 比较 with previous quarters.
报告指出：“ 2020年第一季度持续流入表明ESG投资的粘性。” “可持续基金的投资者通常受其价值驱动，可以长期投资，并且似乎更愿意度过业绩不佳的时期。”
