Sustainable investment is more popular than ever. The number of investment funds that specifically state that they put investors’ money into the shares of companies that focus on good corporate governance and the environment has never been higher and is continuing to grow rapidly, along with the capital that investors are entrusting to these funds. What do these sustainable funds have to offer investors?

And more important for investors, the returns are disappointing. Based on historical performance, it is clear that in terms of yield, sustainable ETFs lag behind non-sustainable ones.
