Thematic investing, fuelled by investors’ desire to achieve a positive impact, is expected to grow over the next three years according to the second thematic investing research report published by BNP Paribas Asset Management and BNP Paribas CIB (Corporate & Institutional Banking) in partnership with Coalition Greenwich.
Previously conducted in 2020, the survey covers almost 200 institutional investors and intermediary distributors in Europe, Asia and North America. The Thematics Barometer aims to provide the global investment community with robust, credible and regular information about the key trends evolving within thematic investment.
Pieter Oyens, Co-Head of Global Product Strategy at BNPP AM, comments:
“Thematic ESG investing is fast becoming mainstream to help investors tackle long term sustainability issues that have the potential to transform markets and create value across portfolios. Investors are aligning across multiple objectives relating to performance and fiduciary duty, whilst navigating the ever-evolving regulatory landscape.”
