Third global investor survey by GIH & EDHEC shows increased importance of ESG

The 2019 survey included more than 315 infrastructure leaders, representing approximately USD10 trillion of global assets under management. This latest report shows a strong increase in ESG awareness – with over 1/3 of institutional investors considering ESG to be a “first order question, possibly at the expense of performance”.

The vast majority of investors polled believe their performance benchmarks are inadequate, highlighting  the need for better-defined benchmarks that measure risk and can help investors make better informed asset-allocation, monitoring and risk-management decisions.
