October 2018

Working in collaboration with our client US SIF Foundation, Croatan Institute conducted extensive research and surveying of hundreds of asset managers and institutional investors in order to analyze key ESG trends across investment vehicles, strategies, and themes.

The 2018 report found that sustainable, responsible and impact investing (SRI) assets now account for $12.0 trillion—or one in four dollars—of the $46.6 trillion in total assets under professional management in the United States. This represents a 38 percent increase over 2016.

The full report is available from US SIF’s website. The Executive Summary is available for download below.
