This is the second Cerulli report dedicated to the topic of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investing in Europe. It focuses on the key responsible investment markets in the region: the U.K., the Netherlands, the Nordics, France, Germany, Italy, and Switzerland. The report is split between four thematic chapters and seven quantitative chapters.
The thematic chapters offer detailed qualitative analysis, supported by relevant data. The first of the four is the Market Overview chapter, which covers the growth of ESG assets under management (AUM) in Europe and provides a detailed overview of the regulatory landscape. The following three chapters take a detailed look at the product landscape and demand in the wholesale channels, the expertise required when serving institutional investors, and the region’s growing focus on climate change reporting, assessment, and product development.
The quantitative chapters cover the seven markets targeted by Cerulli’s research. They provide data-driven insight into the dynamics of each market’s retail and institutional investment landscape. The different market structures and national regulations mean that investor demand for ESG capabilities and products differs from one country to another. The market chapters highlight these differences and the variation in preferences they cause, in addition to examining country-specific ESG regulations.
