australian ethical x Investment Trends 2022 ESG report

The changing face of investing and advice


With ESG principles now inescapable in long-term asset valuations and awareness and uptake growing among advisers and investors, responsible investing continues its rapid advance into the mainstream. Ethical assets now feature more prominently in portfolios and, as a result, more advisers are taking ownership of responsible investing and embracing it as an opportunity to enhance their value proposition and build better rapport with clients.

We’ve teamed-up with Investment Trends for the second ESG Survey of Australian advisers and investors, and the findings are impossible to ignore.


A new era of purpose-driven investing

With 3 in 4 investors now aware of responsible investing and record amounts of money pouring into sustainable and ESG funds, ethical investing has cemented its place in the hearts and minds of investors. Discover the big issues that are driving growth in responsible investing and paving the way for new investment and advice opportunities.
