Only a quarter of advisers always consider ESG investments

This was one of the significant findings of the recent, unique, ESG survey conducted by FECIF.

Whilst it was found that over 90% of financial advisory professionals considered ESG investments some of the time, just 23% did so all of the time; which is potentially concerning, given the EU regulations around ESG matters, the first of which will commence as early as March 2021!

Unique webinar and survey

This data was revealed at the market-leading ESG webinar that FECIF held at the end of September. It was derived from the above-mentioned research, conducted in July and August; which elicited responses from no less than 2,000 advisers and financial intermediaries across Europe.

Given the countries covered and the number of respondents, this is, to the best of my knowledge, one of the most extensive research projects, of its kind, ever conducted; if not the premier survey in the area of ESG advice.

The online event attracted over 200 advisers from all across Europe, and combined a number of industry experts in order to assess some of the key discoveries from this research and discuss advice around ESG investing, not least in light of the forthcoming regulations (which much of the advisory sector seems unsure or unaware of, at this stage)...



The European Federation of Financial Advisers and Financial Intermediaries (FECIF) was chartered in June 1999 for the defence and promotion of the role of financial advisers and intermediaries in Europe.

FECIF, the only body representing European financial advisers and intermediaries, it is based in Brussels, the heart of Europe.
