The Motivations of Institutional Investors towards the Adoption of Sustainable Finance Practices

Abstract

Whilst there is a growing interest in the use of SRI and ESG practices in the strategies of institutional investors, there are very few articles that discuss the motivations of institutional investors to adopt these practices. This research project hopes to fill this gap inthe subject. Based on the literature review, we were able to make assumptions about the concerns of institutional investors when considering sustainable practices for their strategies. Three concerns were found. The first one is financial performance. The second one is regulations. The third one is non-financial concerns, for example reputation or climate goals. These assumptions based on the literature review will help us create a questionnaire in order to gather our own data. This data will allow us to have a general understanding of the motivations of institutional investors to adopt SRI and ESG practices, which may or may not be in line with our assumptions.
