Abstract

The objective of the contribution is the analysis of how ESG factors are affecting the decision-making process of institutional investors. To that end, the key drivers underlying the broad-based shift towards sustainable investments and the main sustainable strategies are considered and a picture of ESG fund market trends is provided. Then the contribution moves on to sift, from a regulatory point of view, the amendments to the legal framework aiming at integrating ESG factors in management companies’ decision-making process as well as at spotting the distinctive features of ESG products. The conclusions are focused on the challenges the institutional investors are facing: the real ESG impact of the managed portfolio and how this is intertwined with the limitations of ESG ratings.
