Ethisch investeren. Aarzelend tussen groei en kwaliteit


  • L. Van Liedekerke


Volgens bepaalde schattingen wordt in de VS ongeveer één dollar op acht ethisch geïnvesteerd. In Europa bereiken we zelfs niet 1%. Dit verschil heeft te maken met een strengere invulling van de notie ‘ethische investering’ in Europa en de relatieve afwezigheid van de institutionele belegger in de Europese context. Stilaan komt hier echter verandering in, de markt voor ethische investeringen groeit en ook de grote spelers lanceren ethische fondsen of ethische indexen. Dit gaat echter gepaard met een relatieve uitholling van het concept en een gebrekkige transparantie met betrekking tot de onderzoeksmethodologie die gehanteerd wordt om ethische van niet ethische investeringen te onderscheiden. De Europese markt staat op dit moment voor een dilemma tussen groei naar Amerikaans model of vasthouden aan strenge selectiecriteria en het risico lopen immer marginaal te blijven.
