Biden Presidency brings increased support for flourishing ESG ETF sector

ESG ETFs dominated ETF industry growth in 2020, particularly in Europe. TrackInsight’s Simon Mott says: “The ESG ETF industry has been around for a while, but something big happened last year. At the start of 2014 there were about 45 ESG ETFs with around USD5 billion AUM. By the start of 2019, the assets had only grown to around USD27 billion AUM across 273 ETFs. But by December 2020, assets had exploded to USD190 billion across 545 funds.”
