While smart-beta seems to be working in investors’ favor and has seen its assets grow exponentially, ESG ETFs have pretty much stalled. Much of that stalling could be attributed to the sector’s historical pretenses, humble beginnings and underperformance.

But investors may want to take a look at ESG and socially responsible investing (SRI) ETFs once again.

In the end, we may have reached the turning point for socially responsible ETFs.
