Headlines you need to know this week   —   October 12, 2021

Sustainable investing is a standard practice, survey finds
Sustainable investing has become a standard part of the investment process for many asset managers, new research found. The survey noted that 84% of asset managers were either implementing or evaluating sustainability factors when selecting investments. The research also found the rate of adoption of sustainable investing is highest in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. In North America, the number of firms embracing sustainable investing rose to 68% in 2021 from 39% in 2018.
Some workers reduce saving due to health costs
About one third of workers have decreased their retirement savings contribution to pay for rising health costs, according to a new financial wellness survey. The study also found that about half of workers (49%) are “moderately concerned” about their household financial well-being. Also, two thirds of respondents cited debt as a problem.
Investor optimism declined
Investor optimism declined, according to a recent AAII Investor Sentiment Survey. The number of investors expecting the price of stocks to rise in the next six months declined in the survey ended October 6, 2021, compared with the previous week. The percentage of respondents citing a bearish sentiment, that stock prices would fall in the near term, also fell. An increasing number of respondents reported a neutral outlook.
