Sustainable investments match or beat the performance of comparable traditional investments most of the time, according to a Morgan Stanley study of thousands of funds over a seven-year period.
The study shows sustainable equity mutual funds had equal or higher median returns, and equal or lower median volatility, than traditional investments 64 percent of the time.
‘We believe sustainable investing will be key to the mobilization of private capital toward addressing global challenges, but the growth and development of this space remains hampered by a lingering perception that sustainable investments require a financial trade-off,’ says Audrey Choi, CEO of the Morgan Stanley Institute for Sustainable Investing, in announcing the results of the study. ‘Our review addresses the investment performance concern head-on, and the findings are very positive.’
