Sovereign Funds Take on ESG – Invesco

Seventy-five percent of sovereign wealth funds have adapted a formal ESG policy, according to an Invesco report. Speaking with CIOs, portfolio strategists, and heads of asset classes across 81 sovereign funds, the report further noted that 40% of sovereign fund respondents said ESG considerations have increased their active allocations. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine highlighted the limitations of implementing ESG via passive strategies, the report added. However, poor data quality is making it more challenging to quantify the impact of their ESG strategies, Invesco noted, adding that the lack of data standards was “stoking concerns” around greenwashing.
