ESG investing saw a 33 percent growth of professionally managed assets -- to $8.72 trillion -- from 2014 to 2016 alone. By the year 2025, 75% of the workforce will be millennials. And this population sees ESG investing as a powerful incentive to invest more for retirement by knowing their investments are doing social good.
What does this mean for advisors? The trends in sustainable investing offer an opportunity for advisors to implement ESG investing into their practice. This presentation educates advisors about ESG investing, the growth trends and investor demands. Times are changing and so are the attitudes of plan participants – and millennials who will be the workforce of tomorrow.
