Millani’s Semi-Annual ESG Sentiment Study of Canadian Institutional Investors

Millani's eighth Semi-Annual ESG Sentiment Study of Canadian Institutional Investors reveals an emergent trend towards a greater emphasis on sustainability outcomes and impacts. The study indicates that 43% of asset managers interviewed are planning to launch impact-oriented products in 2024, marking a notable shift in the industry as investors move beyond ESG integration. Asset owners, asset managers, and issuers who diligently prepare for this shift are likely to secure a competitive advantage, positioning themselves favorably in an investment landscape that is increasingly overseen by regulators and attentive to the tangible impacts of sustainable investing.

Their findings were obtained from 32 interviews conducted in December 2023 with asset owners and managers across Canada totalling over CA $4.5 trillion in AUM.
