Newton whitepaper: The evolution of responsible investing

25 Jan 2019

This paper traces the origins of responsible investing and examines the drivers behind the exponential rise in corporate and investor interest in the sector over the last few years, and the role played by the United Nations within it. It goes on to examine the multitude of different terms used to describe the various types of responsible investing, and attempts to cut through the jargon or ‘greenwash’ that can confuse would-be investors. The paper explains how Newton defines responsible investing within three broad categories,  and presents academic evidence to back up Newton’s assertion that taking an active engagement approach to responsible investing is not only better for limiting downside risk, but also more effective in helping to secure healthier long-term returns.
