The Swiss market for ESG-inclusive investments doubles between June 2006 and June 2007

The Swiss market for ESG-inclusive investments continues to show strong growth, according to a biannual market survey produced by onValues. Swiss assets (including funds, mandates and structured products) that are managed with the explicit inclusion of environmental, social and governance issues totalled approximately CHF 25 billion at the end of the first half of 2007. This represents an increase of 39% relative to the volume per end of 2006, and a doubling of ESG-inclusive assets in the past 12 months. Interesting trends observed are the increasing share of private client investments and the strong growth of new products with a focus in sustainable themes such as climate change, water and alternative energy.
