A global perspective on sustainable investing

In 2017, our Global Investor Study of 20,000 investors in 28 countries around the world revealed that perceptions of sustainable investing are changing and that millennials were more likely to value and invest in sustainable investment funds compared to Generation X and Baby Boomers.

In 2018, to accurately gauge the latest attitudes, we surveyed more than 22,000 people from 30 countries who invest. We asked them about their knowledge, views and actions when it comes to sustainable investing.
