Investment Style and Perceived Drivers of Adoption of Socially Responsible Investment among Swedish Institutional Investors
AbstractA survey was conducted to investigate investment style and drivers of socially responsible investment (SRI) among institutional investors. Respondents were 60 professionals working as SRI or non-SRI investors in 19 different Swedish banks, pension funds, or mutual fund companies. The results showed that non-SRI investors perceived market regulations to be a stronger driver of SRI, while SRI investors perceived others´ behaviour to be stronger driver. No differences were found between SRI and non-SRI investors with respect to short- term vs. long-term or active vs. passive investment styles.
