European SRI Study 2014
October 23, 2014

Eurosif, the European Sustainable Investment Forum, has released its 6th edition of the European SRI Market Study. This report gives an insight in the dynamic, fast growing and innovative European SRI Industry, covering both the institutional and retail assets from 13 distinct European Markets. All data was collected end 2013.

The report shows that all of the surveyed Sustainable and Responsible Investment strategies are continuing to grow at a faster rate than the broad European asset management market. In addition the report elaborates on the emergence of impact investing as another important component of the SRI strategies.

Despite the apparent growth of the market, the study highlights a number of market failures or challenges, such as the wide variations in adoption of SRI practices across countries, the weakness of the retail SRI market and the under-utilised potential of Sustainability themed investments given their potential to closely align with certain public policy objectives.
