Demand continues to grow for responsible investing options

Over the past two decades, the industry has grown to over $8.7 trillion dollars in assets. From millennials to retirees, interest is very high. According to a Morgan Stanley research report, 75% of individual investors and 86% of millennial investors are either somewhat or very interested. Also in that report, 71% of investors agreed that leading social, environmental and governance practices can potentially lead to higher profitability and may be better long-term investments.
