ESG considerations are an important factor for first time investors

When making their first investment, individuals have a lot to think about. They may be considering the amount of risk they are willing to take. How much they are looking to contribute or which investment manager they want to entrust their money to?

Our recent research shows us that an important part of the thought process is around environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors. With 52% of prospective investors stating that ESG factors would be important when investing.

While a key consideration globally, when broken down by region we see more importance in Asia at 56% compared with 47% in Europe.

The two countries that placed the greatest emphasis on taking ESG into consideration were the Philippines at 75% and Indonesia at 69%.
