Purpose-Driven Investing is More than Just a Score

Socially responsible investing and impact investing are creating a paradigm shift for many investors. Investors are wary of fossil fuels, weapons, and tobacco companies, and are incorporating solutions-based approaches that focus on the environment and social factors. The growth has shown up numerically as SRI has grown from a $2 trillion industry in 2004 to a $17 trillion industry in 2020, according to the US Forum for Sustainable and Responsible Investment. This is driven by the 85% of millennials who believe their investment decisions impact climate change and 71% of the general public who think the same. However, these investors are savvy; and while Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) impact scores and rating systems have been popular to expand public knowledge, SRI investors are aware of the faults. According to a report by Morgan Stanley, despite positive ESG ratings, companies like Exxon Mobil, McDonald’s, Raytheon, and DuPont are turn-offs for clients. Clients are looking for more than just an impact score. They want a history of purpose investing, rather than the bare minimum greenwashing to appear in ESG funds.
