AIMA Survey Highlights Growth in Responsible Investing

Hedge funds globally have allocated at least $59 billion to responsible investment (RI), according to a survey by the Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA) and the Cayman Alternative Investment Summit (CAIS).
The survey of 80 asset managers with $550 billion in hedge fund assets under management (AUM) provides evidence of an increasing level of demand for RI across the hedge fund industry, with around 40% of the respondents saying they are already investing using responsible investment principles, with total assets in such investments worth $59 billion – a little over 10% of the respondents’ combined hedge fund AUM.
