Are ESG Stocks in a Bubble?

There has been rising anxiety of late that the growing assets in ESG stocks have created a valuation bubble in the most popular shares in the category. The idea is that rush into ESG has funneled a ton of capital into a relatively small group of shares, “artificially” inflating valuation. However, the Financial Times argues that there is definitively no bubble in these stocks. In fact, they are not valued any more richly than any average basket of shares. Overall, the average PE ratio of a global basket of ESG stocks is the same for an average basket of all stocks: 14x.


FINSUM: This is actually quite a relieving study, as there have been some very lofty AUM growth figures thrown around lately for ESG. And in case you are nervous, the same metrics/comparison listed above also hold for US/domestic ESG stocks.
