Why Investors Launch Plant-Based Friendly Fund
Speaking about the importance of a Global Water Fund, Pathfinder pointed out that the United Nations has named water-related causes — water pollution, access, and sustainability — as some of the most urgent. “The investment thesis is simple, we believe that companies involved in solving this global crisis will outperform in the long-term,” Pathfinder commented.
“We believe that investors should consider the environmental, social and governance (ESG) impact of their investments,” Pathfinder writes on its website. And increasingly, investors are. The company highlights statistics pointing out that 78 percent of Millennials consider ESG factors when making investments. Baby Boomers and those in Gen X are not far behind, with 68 percent and 74 percent respectively of investors taking ESG into account when making investment decisions.
Pathfinder also points out that considering these factors can benefit the bank accounts of investors, as well as have a positive impact on the planet and those who inhabit it.
