Recent research7 has found that the war in Ukraine has prompted investors to become more vigilant about where their money is
being invested, looking at conscious investing.

Over half (54%) of those surveyed feel they have become more conscious of capital allocation in the wake of the conflict, regarding their investments through a more ethical lens. Four in ten respondents are considering conscious investing, investments aligned with their moral
values as a direct result of the invasion.

Investors demand accountability
A report8 about the direction of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) in the months ahead highlights the rising pressure that corporate boards face to demonstrate they are adequately equipped to understand and oversee such ESG issues as climate change, human rights and social unrest.  Pressure on boards to brush up their ESG credentials is set to intensify as investors demand accountability from the top and heightened focus on sustainability.
