Inspire Investing was highlighted in the US Sustainable Investment Forum (SIF) Foundation’s report titled, “Rise of ESG in Passive Investments” for their efforts to bring a faith-based approach to environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing. Only eight leading investment firms out of many were selected for special mention case-studies for their work in the growing ESG investing industry.
“We are honored to be highlighted in this industry-leading research study by the US SIF,” stated Robert Netzly, CEO of Inspire Investing. “The US SIF is the leading voice in the secular sustainable investing industry, and their research is a primary source of information for investors around the globe interested in ESG incorporation. We are proud to represent faith-based investors everywhere in this major report.”
The US SIF “Rise of ESG in Passive Investments” report explores the growth of passive ESG investing and the debate on the effectiveness of passive ESG funds versus active ESG funds, as well as the increasing flow of assets to passively managed ESG funds.
A key observation of the report is that the “net flows into passively managed ESG funds outpaced net flows into their actively managed counterparts during the four of the past five years…In 2019, net flows into passive ESG funds totaled $12.7 billion compared to $8.7 billion for active ESG funds.”
Inspire Investing was highlighted as one of eight ESG investment firms chosen as case-studies for their work to combine passive investing and ESG.
The US SIF is a leading voice in sustainable ESG investing and produces some of the most widely followed and influential research in the industry.
