Anyone interested in generating solid investment returns may wish to consider Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) investing as part of their portfolio. We find that younger people are very engaged in discussions on the topic, which is fantastic to see. As advisers we don’t often see younger clients even though they have the benefit of time in their favour and we can do so much more for them with an early start! Prospective investors of all ages also can have strong views on ethics and the environment. Others are interested in diversifying their portfolio into areas which will benefit if the current evolution in sustainability and ESG issues turns into a revolution, or based on a view that if a company is doing good things in relation to ESG and sustainability, it is likely to be doing good things in other important areas of the business. Thanks to Damian Cottier, portfolio manager at Perennial Value Management, for his inspiration and enthusiasm in creating his Sustainable Future Trust.
