According to Bloomberg Intelligence*, ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) assets are forecast to exceed £36.5trn ($50trn) – over a third of projected global assets – by 2025. The analysis comes as environmental, social and governance factors are becoming increasingly important to investors across the globe.
