The impact of esg investing in emerging market equities

Why ESG matters in Emerging Markets

Investing according to Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria is increasingly embraced by investors in developed markets. Integrating ESG factors in Emerging Markets can present more of a challenge. Yet the attraction of innovative, higher-growth markets remains, and EM markets are showing evidence of positive change on ESG issues. For investors with an objective of positive social and environmental impact, these can matter as much as financial return. For most investors a central question is: Do ESG factors add to, detract from, or have no effect on financial returns in EM equities?

Many investors are ready to become involved in emerging market companies. Practical strategies are needed to ensure both positive financial returns and protection of the social and natural capital of target investments. Simply transferring processes suited to investing in developed markets to emerging markets is clearly inappropriate, we find. A far more holistic approach is necessary.
