Social finance: from ESG to SRI

According to BNY Mellon research, social finance refers to any investment activity that generates financial returns and includes social and environmental impact. Social finance encompasses diverse investment strategies and products across asset classes that deliver a range of risk-adjusted returns and align with different investor motivations and goals. Social finance includes four primary strategies: socially responsible investing (SRI), environmental finance, development finance and impact investing.

Social finance impacts are already emerging via investor demands and regulatory changes. In particular, pension plan sponsors are now beginning to investigate considerations of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors.
