Sustainable Funds Still Gaining Steam in 2019
Jon Hale recaps the first quarter for U.S. ESG funds, which continue to build on their record inflows from the previous year.
Jon Hale: Hi I'm Jon Hale, global head of sustainable investing research at Morningstar, here to give you a quick recap on sustainable funds in the first quarter.
In February, I published my Sustainable Funds Landscape Report detailing the continued--and record--growth in the number of sustainable funds and ETFs now available to U.S. investors, and the record level of asset flows into those funds last year, despite difficult market conditions that made 2018 the worst year for flows into stock and bond funds overall since the financial crisis.
