One in Five Cite Sustainability as Key Benefit of Hiring Fiduciaries

Only 18% of global institutional Investors said help making portfolios more sustainable is one of the most important benefits of hiring a fiduciary manager or outsourced CIO provider, in a recent survey conducted by CoreData Research. APAC-based investors (26%) are most likely to see sustainable investing as a core attribute of fiduciary management, but only 13% of North American investors take this view, according to an analysis of nearly 300 responses. Access to the best ideas and asset managers, cited by almost two-thirds (64%) of investors, is seen as the top benefit of partnering with a fiduciary manager. By organisation type, endowments and foundations (81%) attach most value to access to best ideas and managers. Access to a range of asset classes including alternatives (55%) is the second-most valued benefit of fiduciary management. Just over half (52%) of institutional investors cite the benefit of dedicated expertise and specialism.
