Responsible Institutional Investing Around the World
We explore a novel survey on responsible investing by institutional investors around the world and match it to archival data on equity portfolio holdings. We study what factors make institutions commit to responsible investing and incorporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria into their investment processes. We examine different ESG investment strategies (e.g., screening, integration, corporate engagement) and how these various strategies improve portfolio-level ESG scores. We find considerable differences between European and North American investors as well as early versus late Principles for Responsible Investing (PRI) signatories. Finally, we investigate if committing to different ESG investment strategies affects investment risk-adjusted performance and risk.
