A study by Schroders
The Schroders Global Investment Study (GIS) 2019 interviewed to over 25,000 people, from 32 locations around the world, about their attitudes towards sustainable investing.
Concerns over sustainability are growing; from tackling climate change, to social, health and technological progress. Sustainable investment funds can be a way to combine profit with positive impact.
Sustainability factors are a key consideration for people in Indonesia when selecting investments
74% believe that all investment funds should consider sustainability factors.
73% believe that individual investors can significantly contribute to a more sustainable world by choosing sustainable investment products.
76% consider sustainability factors when selecting an investment product.
Most people in Indonesia believe that climate change is having, or will have, some impact on their investments. However, sustainable factors were often deemed less important than financial motivations when considering investments.
Here are the top five most important investment factors to people:
1) Generating their expected level of income
2) Their money is invested in sustainable investments.
3) Avoiding losing money
4) Meeting their total investment return expectations
5) Online access to investment account.
People in Indonesia say there are many external drivers that would encourage them to allocate more of their investments to sustainable funds.
Those who claim to have higher levels of investment knowledge seem more inclined to invest in sustainable funds.
