ESG – The must-have toolkit for investors to the Caribbean and Central America

Tuesday, 1st September 2020

ESG investing is growing rapidly and its popularity will continue to increase. What does this mean for your investments or business in Central America and the Caribbean?


The financial argument in favour of ESG investments is now established as they rival andsometimes outperform conventional investments. ESG criteria, therefore, form an investor toolkit that will play an important role in the Caribbean and Central America as awareness rises among consumers and investors about global supply chains, corporate governance, as well as the societal and environmental impacts of commercial activity.

Investors have injected record sums into sustainable finance during the COVID-19 pandemic in pursuit of assets that can retain value in the midst of market shocks. Funds that invest according to ESG criteria have attracted net flows of US$71.1bn globally between April and June this year pushing assets under management in ESG investments to just over US$1tn according to some estimates.
