Morgan Stanley On Investing In Sustainability...

Lower volatility, competitive returns and the potential to make a positive change in the world. A new report by Morgan Stanley's Institute for Sustainable Investing finds that socially conscious investors might benefit financially from their focus on social or environmental factors.

The report surveyed 10,000 equity mutual funds over the last seven years that focus on sustainable investing approaches. Researchers found these mutual funds, as a group, tended to meet or exceed the median returns of their traditional counterparts. The findings are significant because they highlight the depth, breadth, and quality of sustainable investing options in the public markets .

Mark Newberg is the Director of Impact Strategies for Womble Carlyle and he believes this new study reflects significant advancement within the Impact Economy.

“This report shows the continuation of a trend we've seen in recent years, as the options for quality impact investment expand, and the analytic rationale for impact in corporate decision-making has become increasingly compelling” he said.
