Hedge Funds Start Integrating ESG

The Alternative Investment Management Association (‘AIMA’) notes global Assets under Management (‘AuM’) has surpassed €820bn in sustainable funds. AIMA sees hedge funds becoming more active around sustainability issues as the pandemic has increased focused on sustainability issues. While hedge funds are expected to increasingly adopt ESG approaches, BNP Paribas found that 40% of managers include ESG considerations in their investment processes in a survey consisting of 53 hedge funds running more than €411bn in combined AuM.
