APAC investors lag behind EU, US counterparts in ESG allocations

A recent survey by PwC has found that only 65% of institutional investors in Asia-Pacific plan on increasing their environmental, social, and governance (ESG)-related assets under management (AUM) in the next two years, while 83.6% of these investors in Europe and 81% of those in the US plan on doing so. Asset managers in the Asia-Pacific are, however, more ready, with 80% planning to increase their ESG AGM, on a par with US asset managers. Asset managers in Europe are ahead, with 89.6% making such plans. Through its latest survey, PwC also found that 72% of investors in Asia-Pacific are willing to fork out higher fees for ESG performance, although the proportion of those who are willing is lower than the global average of 78%.
