Investors Start To See Value In Looking To the Long Term

Environmental, social and governance issues moved to centre stage in 2014, and they will be even more central to investment strategies in 2015, says research group MSCI.

Investors showed a growing appetite to address longer term risks and opportunities, “whether it is shifting regulations targeting the ‘tax gap’, a new market benchmark to define green bonds, or the adoption of low carbon investment solutions,” says Linda Eling-Lee, global head of ESG research.

There will be no shortage of such risks and opportunities this year, as investors look forward to 2015 against a backdrop of plummeting oil prices, renewed geopolitical faultlines and preparations for global climate talks that should seal a deal for all countries to limit their emissions of greenhouse gases.
