Asian institutional investors are showing interest in partnering with other asset owners and asset managers as they seek to meet their climate goals but are hindered by the lack of investment avenues and technical expertise.
Our research shows that 66% of asset owners evaluate risks posed to investment portfolios due to increased carbon emissions. They require managers to report data on greenhouse gas emissions and carbon intensity of their portfolios, as well as security-level ESG scores (52%). Reporting on social aspects, such as metrics on gender diversity and sustainable development goals, is expected by 43% of managers and 71% will require such reporting in the next two years.
Looking forward, we believe that asset owners will require greater assistance engaging with investee companies, assisting with ESG-related data, customized portfolios, guidance on net zero, and more. Learn more about how your firm can position your ESG experience with asset owners and gain our outlook for ESG product development, distribution, and adoption among retail and institutional investors with our latest report, Environmental, Social, and Governance Investing in Asia 2022: Marching Ahead Toward Sustainability Goals.
