Morgan Stanley Sustainable Signals: Asset Owners See Sustainability as Core to Future of Investing

NEW YORK--(Business Wire / Korea Newswire) May 28, 2020 -- A majority of asset owners globally actively integrate ESG factors into their investment process, according to a new survey published today by the Morgan Stanley Institute for Sustainable Investing and Morgan Stanley Investment Management. The new survey polled 110 public and corporate pensions, endowments, foundations, sovereign wealth entities, insurance companies and other large asset owners worldwide, 92% of which had total assets over $1 billion. The survey gathered insights about trends, motivations, challenges and implementation approaches in sustainable investing. This work builds on the Institute’s extensive body of research tracking sustainable investing trends over the last six years through its Sustainable Signals survey series focused on individual investors, asset owners and asset managers.

“These results provide an additional proof point that sustainable investing has become table stakes,” said Audrey Choi, Chief Sustainability Officer and CEO of the Institute for Sustainable Investing at Morgan Stanley. “This year’s survey found more asset owners identifying return potential as a key driver for sustainability integration, and accordingly many envision a future where they will limit their allocations to managers with formalized sustainability approaches.”

Ted Eliopoulos, Vice Chairman at Morgan Stanley Investment Management, said: “The majority of investors surveyed believe that companies with ESG-aligned practices can be better long term investments, but continue to need better reporting and data to evaluate holdings on those criteria. Investment managers can play a critical role supporting clients as they implement tools to assess how investments align with their sustainability goals.”

Nearly eight in ten (78%) investors surveyed agree that sustainable investing is a risk mitigation strategy. Additionally, asset owners already practicing sustainable investing have identified clear benefits to reputation and stakeholder engagement.

“Sustainable investing has gathered enough momentum in recent years to reach the mainstream, and this survey aims to track the way asset owners are integrating these considerations over time,” said Matthew Slovik, Head of Global Sustainable Finance at Morgan Stanley. “As the appetite for sustainable investing rapidly accelerates, we see technology and third-party investment managers playing a key role in measuring sustainability and further driving adoption.”

Results from the survey identify several trends reflecting the increasing growth in sustainable investing as a whole. Key findings include:

· Asset owners increasingly embrace sustainable investing.
- Adoption increased from 70% in 2017 to 80% in 2019
- A further 15% of respondents are actively considering sustainable investing adoption
- Nearly six in ten (57%) can envision a time when they will only allocate to investment managers with a formal approach to ESG.

· Asset owners seek better tools and data to measure sustainability.
- Asset owners are eager to measure and report portfolio impacts, but nearly a third (31%) lack adequate tools to assess investments against their ESG goals
- 86% believe that investment managers can play a key role in ESG reporting and education

· Among asset owners that make thematic or impact investments, 88% seek to address environmental themes.
- Climate change, water solutions, plastic waste and the circular economy are the top environmental issues they seek to address
- For social issues, gender diversity and education are the top priorities

· ESG integration remains the most common approach to sustainable investing.
- Across all approaches, investors find the highest quality sustainable investing strategies in public equities (78%) and fixed income (69%)
- 45% of sustainable investors allocating to fixed income are actively investing in green or sustainability bonds or bond funds

여름철 운동 시 지켜야 할 수칙 4가지
옷차림이 가벼워지고, 휴가가 있는 여름철. 운동 강도를 높이려고 땀복까지 입고 운동을 하는 사람들이 많다. 그 이유는 땀이 많이 배출되면 운동 효과가 높아지고 살이 빠진다고 생각해서이다.여름철이 다른 계절보다 땀이 많이 배출되기는 하지만 땀을 많이 흘린다고 운동 효과가 높아지는 것은 아니며, 체내의 수분이 많이 빠져나갈 뿐 체중과는 별 상관이 없다. 무더위에 과도하게 운동을 하면 심장 박동이 빨라지고 체온이 높이 올라가 몸 속 전해질까지 빠져나가 몸의 균형이 깨져버리기 쉽다.또한 심할 경우 열사병 같은 열 관련 질환과 탈수, 탈진 증세가 나타나 쓰러질 수도 있으니 특히, 당뇨병과 고혈압 등의 만성질환자는 절대 무리하게 운동을 해서는 안 된다. 여름철 운동 시 지켜야 할 수칙을 알아본다. 1. 준비운동과 정리운동은 필수 운동 전후 간단히 5~10분간 준비운동과 정리운동을 하는 게 좋으며, 운동을 단계적으로 하면 심장이 서서히 적응해 무리가 덜 가고 운동 효과를 높일 수 있다. 준비운동은 체온을 상승시켜 관절을 최대한 늘려주고 유연하게 만들어 부상을 방지해주며, 운동을 시작한 지 얼마 안 됐거나 운동량이 많고 강도가 셀수록 준비운동 시간을 길게 잡는 것이 좋다.
