On 10 May 2012, the Association of the Luxembourg Fund Industry (ALFI), in association with LuxFLAG, organised its first “Responsible Investing Conference” in the presence of HHRRHH the Grand Duke and the Grand Duchess of Luxembourg. Numerous renowned panelists participated in the event to highlight the opportunities that responsible investments offer. During the conference, a study by KPMG and commissioned by ALFI was presented, which draws a picture of the current state of the industry.

 “The European Responsible Investing Fund Survey”, published today by the Association of the Luxembourg Fund Industry (ALFI), shows that there are 1,236 Responsible Investment (RI) funds in Europe, with assets under management totalling EUR 129.49 billion. This amount is quite substantial compared, for instance, to the EUR 5.5 billion under management by specific microfinance investment vehicles worldwide. Responsible Investment (RI) assets in Europe represent almost 1.6% of the European investment fund market in terms of assets and 2.3% in terms of number of funds.
