A Broken Record: Flows for U.S. Sustainable Funds Again Reach New Heights

Net flows of $51 billion in 2020 were more than double the total for 2019 and nearly 10 times more than in 2018.

Sustainable funds in the United States continued to attract record flows from investors in 2020, just as they did the year before, and the year before that. During 2020, flows into sustainable open-end and exchange-traded funds available to U.S. investors reached $51.1 billion. That was a significant increase over 2019, when flows were $21.4 billion, and a nearly tenfold increase over 2018, when flows were $5.4 billion. Both the 2018 and 2019 flows had set calendar-year records. Sustainable fund flows constituted nearly a fourth of overall net flows into stock and bond mutual funds in the U.S. in 2020.
