The majority of advisers have a very positive view of the importance of ESG in portfolio construction, according to a new study among financial advisers by Foresight Group LLP (“Foresight”), a leading independent infrastructure and private equity investment manager.

The research, conducted among more than 100 financial advisers, revealed that, almost two-thirds of advisers (64%) see ESG considerations as ‘important’ when building portfolios for their clients, of which 15% see it as ‘very important’.

Moreover, four out of five (80%) advisers believe in the importance of ESG investing in ensuring the UK delivers its ‘net zero’ carbon targets.  Over three-quarters of advisers (77%) say they would consider investing in a global equity fund with an investment mandate focusing on companies that combat climate change.
