The Fund Industry’s Wake-up Call: How Investors Want Us to Act

October 2019 
By Jessica Ground

Jessica Ground, Global Head of Stewardship, explains why sustainability is no longer a “nice to have” for companies—it’s an imperative.

Like Greta Thunberg crossing the Atlantic, sustainability has gone global.

But the future of our planet doesn’t just dominate news and social media, it’s part of our conversations at home, around the water cooler, and in the coffee shop. Every flight we take, every meal we order, every item of clothing we buy can tug at our conscience.

Important Risks: Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. • Risks of focusing on investments that involve sustainability and environmentally responsible investment criteria may influence investment performance relative to a fund’s benchmark or competing funds and expose a fund to increased risks related to downturns or other adverse developments in that market segment.
