Will my returns be affected for the Responsible Investing Portfolio?
Your returns are not compromised when you invest in our ESG-optimised Responsible Investing Portfolio. They are similar to our classic General Investing Portfolios, which optimise for returns, but do so using ESG aligned principles. This makes them ideal for building your core wealth, or for working towards long-term financial goals such as saving for retirement.
Global momentum has been huge for socially responsible investing recently, with assets estimated to reach US$53 trillion by 2025, a third of global AUM, according to Bloomberg. This is not only because investors have become more socially-conscious, but also because some companies with strong ESG ratings may do better in the long run by staying committed to the ‘triple bottom line’, which takes into account not just profit, but also people and the planet.
