Major Forces Behind SRI Growth The following factors are key to the robust growth of SRI: More and more money managers are incorporating social and environmental factors into their investing practices, acknowledging the demand for social investing products and services from: institutional and individual investors, socially concerned high net worth clients, individuals seeking SRI options in their retirement and college-savings plans and "mission-driven" institutions including foundations, endowments, labour unions and faith-based investors.
New products and fund styles are driving growth in socially and environmentally screened funds, especially ETFs and alternative investment funds such as social venture capital, double and triple bottom line private equity and hedge funds. A growing concern about climate change and its risk for portfolios is intensifying the interest in SRI among money managers.
Investor demand is growing for portfolio opportunities in clean and green technology, alternative and renewable energy, green building and responsible property development, and other environmentally driven businesses. A large and expanding number of institutional investors are actively supporting shareholder resolutions on social, environmental, and corporate governance issues and joining investor coalitions, such as the Investor Network on Climate Risk, to make their concerns known about the risks and opportunities associated with issues such as climate change.
Increasing numbers of institutional investors, fund families and money managers are incorporating criteria related to the crisis in the Sudan into portfolio management and shareholder advocacy, whether through targeted divestment or active engagement with companies exposed to the risks of doing business in such a volatile, repressive regime. The expansion of market-rate opportunities and other industry developments are making it easier for a broad range of investors to participate in the expanding field of community investing.
