Over the past five years, the importance of ESG has grown exponentially within the investment industry across the globe, with Morningstar recently reporting growth in ESG focused funds for the fifth consecutive quarter, to over $2.3 trillion in Q2 2021, and Bloomberg predicting that global ESG assets will exceed $53 trillion by 2025. Whilst Europe leads the way, the US is expected to expand quickly within this sector, dominating it over the next months and years.

Responsible investing is, however, not only limited to environmental issues.

In the wake of 2020, the world experienced a seismic cultural shift that has never been seen before, culminating in an urgency for the improvement of racial and gender equality on a global basis. Prioritizing diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace is now see as paramount, with research proving that firms with diverse leadership teams consistently outperform those that don’t.
