- A majority (62%) of respondents said they consider ESG factors when making investment decisions
- Over half (52%) of respondents chose environmental issues as the most important ESG factor when making investment decisions, while about one-third (31%) said governance
- Two-thirds (66%) of respondents agreed integrating ESG factors into investment decisions was additive to risk-adjusted performance
