Travis Fairchild, CFA®, Senior Investment Strategist and Vered Frank, CFP®, Head of Product Marketing at Vise discuss the rise of ESG investing, and how advisors can deliver value to their clients, while navigating misconceptions and myths surrounding the evolving ESG landscape.
Flows to ESG investments have poured in over the last few years. U.S. investors are increasingly looking for opportunities to invest in companies that reflect their values. This sentiment is even stronger amongst younger generations. According to research cited by Vise, ESG focused portfolios make up roughly 25% of all professionally managed portfolios in the United States. This shift in investor mindset creates new pathways for advisors to deliver value and help achieve client goals.
Compared to the early days, ESG investments today are plentiful and easy to access. Critics say that increased access and options surrounding “ESG” has led to one-size fits all solutions and the potential for greenwashing. Fairchild and Frank point to ways advisors can help their clients express their values, without sacrificing performance. Vise is a technology-powered investment manager that provides financial advisors with customized and intelligent investment solutions to help their clients achieve their goals.
