“APAC ESG ETFs see assets double to US$2 billion from 2015” – The Asset ESG Forum – August 6, 2019

On August 6, 2019 The Asset ESG Forum noted that “(d)emand from domestic investors is pushing growth of exchange traded funds (ETFs) in the still nascent environmental, social and governance (ESG) investment space of Asia’s fund management industry, according to a new report released by Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc., a global fintech firm and part of the S&P 500® Index. 

The report found there are signs of growing acceptance across the industry, led by institutions. Elsewhere, easing interest rate-hike expectations reignited interest in fixed income strategies during the first quarter of 2019.”

The Asia Pacific region “is experiencing encouraging growth in ESG funds, especially in Australia, China and Japan, while Q1 sees strongest regional bond net flows since Q4 in 2016.”
