Millennial trends are always a talking point, and according to Morgan and Stanley 86% of millennial investors said they were interested in sustainable investing.
This comes with an increase in millennials saying their investments can influence climate change and could also help people out of poverty.

Women of all ages are also said to be showing more interest in sustainable investment compared to men, with 84% vs 67%. However, when it came to action, men were just as likely to have integrated sustainability into their investment decisions.

Around 71% of investors polled agreed good social, environmental and governance practices can potentially lead to higher profitability and possibly better long term investments.

In the United States, sustainable and impact investment rose 33% from 2014 to 2016 at $8.72 trillion.
