Be the first. It is important for investors and advisors to review all these factors collectively, not just as independent parts, to ensure a complete understanding of the portfolio. Morningstar Direct provides a range of tools and data points that can help you answer these questions and start thinking about potential reallocation decisions.
At Morningstar, we've identified six distinct approaches : apply exclusions , limit ESG risk , seek ESG opportunities, practice active ownership , target sustainability themes , and assess impact. This section matches three of the approaches—apply exclusions, seek ESG opportunities, and assess impact—to the asset classes they best represent.
The order of this section reflects the availability of each fund type, as measured by assets under management as of May If You Want to Eliminate the Bad: Exclusionary Screening Most, though not all, sustainable funds employ some level of exclusions in determining the investable universe.
Common exclusions in the United States include gambling, alcohol, pornography, civilian weapons manufacturing, tobacco, and fossil fuels. Consider that value equity managers screen out expensive companies and growth managers exclude slow-growing companies. Once an exclusion is implemented, a portfolio will tilt toward one style or another. If You Want to Emphasize the Good: Active Equity Funds Funds could also choose to actively bring good companies into their portfolio rather than only avoiding problematic ones.
Of all asset classes, actively managed equity funds—that is, equity funds where the portfolio manager seeks to beat the overall stock market—have the most opportunities for making ESG considerations part of their investment process. This commonly begins with a narrowing of the investable universe by screening out controversial businesses. From there, the portfolio managers select securities, typically based on a combination of financial prospects and fundamental sustainability research both proprietary and third-party.
Then, holdings are optimized according to various objectives, including sustainability criteria. To do so, fund managers will typically allocate a greater portion of the portfolio to the most impressive securities from an ESG perspective. If You Take a More Hands-off Approach: Passive Funds Where active managers seek to outperform the market benchmark, passive managers use a rules-based approach that seeks to deliver returns on par with the broad market.
But the inclusion of ESG data makes passive investing even more difficult. Rather, different index providers will have different views on ESG data. Passive sustainable funds can also look different from one another: They can be more like traditional index funds that tilt toward a style, market cap, or region. Or they can resemble strategic-beta funds , which apply fundamental criteria systematically. And since these funds are often based on backward-looking data, they can look out of step when the market takes abrupt twists and turns.
If You Want to Pursue Impact Investing: Fixed-Income Funds Sustainable fixed-income funds tend to face greater challenges than their equity peers for many reasons, but there are two main ones:. That said, there is one area where fixed-income funds hold a significant advantage over equity funds: impact investing. Options to invest in bonds ostensibly funding sustainable projects have increased since the European Investment Bank issued the first Climate Awareness bonds in and the World Bank followed up with its own green bond in Although some have questioned the sincerity and efficacy of these instruments, their ranks have grown considerably, including blue bonds , social bonds, and sustainability-linked bonds.
Given the behavioral and tax implications of quickly moving a portfolio into the target allocations, we urge taking a gradual approach to transitioning your assets. Still, these are likely to be limited situations. And in any of them, you should closely evaluate your entire financial and tax situation, along with the costs and benefits of paying early capital gains taxes on fund sales, before deciding to do so.
In most cases, a more gradual approach will make more sense. The table below details several ways that different kinds of investors can transition their portfolio. The right tactic for you will depend on several factors, such as what you consider a priority and if you have the financial wherewithal to offset larger-than-usual taxes.
For example, if your top priority is reducing the carbon-emissions footprint of the portfolio, you might try targeting highest-impact ESG areas to prioritize withdrawing assets from equity funds with high carbon risk scores and transitioning them to funds that earn a Low Carbon Designation. And if your portfolio meets the requirements, targeting retirement accounts first might be appealing because of its potential for large impact more quickly.
This may be less of a concern with IRAs, as they are often held at brokerages with large fund universes. For employer-sponsored retirement plans, however, the universe of ESG options is more limited. In such cases, investors must assess whether existing ESG options provide sufficient quality, diversify adequately, and fit with their ESG goals to warrant serving as their main ESG investments.
A second option is to consider funds that are not intentional ESG funds but have other favorable qualities. We expect investment options and data points related to sustainability to change rapidly in the coming years. This content is not intended to be individualized investment advice, but rather to illustrate possible factors that can impact financial decisions. Investors should consider this information in the full context of their own financial decisions. Read our editorial policy to learn more about our process.
Editor's note: This article was originally published on Sept. Conversely, you can use sustainable investing as a portfolio constraint. For example, you could exclude any funds that are exposed to weapons manufacturers or minimize the overall level of carbon risk in your portfolio. The next step is to look at the sustainability of your current portfolio.
