Consumer Survey

Responsible Investment has become the new norm in New Zealand

The Survey, commissioned by the Responsible Investment Association Australasia (RIAA) and Mindful Money was undertaken by Colmar Brunton. 1,000 New Zealanders aged 18+ completed the survey online between 27 August and 3 September 2018. The sample has been weighted to be nationally representative of the New Zealand population.

 

Consumer demand for ethical investment growing

9 in 10 Australians expect their superannuation or other investments to be invested responsibly and ethically, new research commissioned by the Responsible Investment Association Australasia (RIAA) has revealed.

 

In an important signal to Australia’s superannuation, banking and wealth management sectors, 4 in 5 Australians would consider switching their super or other investments to another provider if their current fund engaged in activities inconsistent with their values, and just over half will consider making ethical or responsible investments in the next 1 to 5 years.

 

The Australia-wide polling, conducted by Lonergan Research and launched today at RIAA’s Responsible Investment Australia 2017 conference in Sydney, shows consumer demand for responsible and ethical investment is on the rise, as the responsible investment industry continues to grow in size and influence.
