According to the United States Sustainable Investment Forum, money managers using environmental, social, and corporate governance criteria in their portfolio selection represented over $2.3 trillion in assets under management in 2001 and more than $3.7 trillion in 2012. Assets managed according to SRI principles have increased at a disproportionately higher rate than those that have not: since 1995, total assets under management increased by 376 percent, while SRl assets have increased by 486 percent.
