Male Investors More Skeptical of ESG Than Women in New Study

A study of investor preferences in Denmark has revealed that women are more willing than men to sacrifice returns to uphold environmental, social and governance goals.

The analysis, which was conducted by Danske Bank A/S unit Danske Invest, showed that 59% of men were ready to invest in companies that ignored sustainability, provided they generated higher returns. Among women, the figure was 41%, Danske said in a report published on Thursday.
