New Conning Survey Shows a Significant Jump in ESG Investing Engagement Among U.S. Insurers
January 19, 2022
These highlight ESG principles in internal and external communications, reinforcing the importance of ESG factors on the firms’ reputation. “As ESG engagement increases among U.S. insurance companies, as well as increasing U.S. regulatory demands, more firms are likely to integrate ESG principles and programs across investments and operations in the years to come,” said Terence Martin, Director, Insurance Research at Conning and lead analyst for the survey.
The Conning ESG Survey of U.S. Insurers utilized survey technology provided by Qualtrics, LLC in November 2021. The survey was sent to more than 7,000 insurance industry representatives, resulting in 280 qualified responses from U.S. insurance decision-makers in the life and P&C sectors. Results may not be representative of any one respondent’s experience as they reflect an average of all, or a sample of all, of the experiences of surveyed U.S. insurance company decision-makers. Conning paid Qualtrics, LLC a fee for services rendered. Analysis of results was done by Conning’s Insurance Research team with additional analysis by the firm’s investment team.
