BlackRock
Apollo 4.0
 

To our partners and clients:
 
In January, BlackRock’s CEO Larry Fink wrote about a fundamental reshaping of finance as investors significantly reallocate capital toward sustainable strategies. To understand our clients’ evolving preferences and outlook for sustainable investing – including the effect of the pandemic on these preferences – we recently conducted a Global Sustainable Investing Survey .
 
We heard from 425 investors in 27 countries representing an estimated US$25 trillion in assets under management. The results reveal several key themes:

  • 54% of global respondents consider sustainable investing to be fundamental to their investment processes and outcomes.
  • 88% of respondents ranked the environment as their top priority when comparing focus on Environmental, Social, and Governance factors. Over the next 3-5 years, Social issues are likely to grow the most in terms of client concerns.
  • Respondents, representing US$25 trillion in assets, plan to double their sustainable assets under management in the next five years.
  • 53% of global respondents cited concerns around the poor quality or availability of ESG data and analytics as the biggest barrier to broader implementation of sustainable investing.

With our clients citing a strong and growing emphasis on sustainable investing, BlackRock continues to follow through on the sustainability objectives we laid out in January. Learn more about our 2020 actions and where we continue to progress.
 
Please let me know if you would like to discuss this or any other matters of interest.
 
Sincerely,
Mark McCombe
