Socially responsible investing is a booming market in both the US and Europe. Assets in socially screened portfolios climbed to $3.07 trillion at the start of 2010, a 34% increase since 2005, according to the US SIF's 2010 Report on Socially Responsible Investing Trends in the United States. From 2007 to 2010 alone, SRI assets increased more than 13%, while professionally managed assets overall increased less than 1%. As of 2010, nearly one of every eight dollars under professional management in the US is involved in socially responsible investing—12.2% of the $25.2 trillion in total assets under management tracked by Thomson Reuters Nelson.
Research estimates by financial consultancy Celent predict that the SRI market in the US will reach $3 trillion by 2011. The European SRI market grew from €1 trillion in 2005 to €1.6 trillion in 2007.

Famous quotes containing the word modern:
“So gladly, from the songs of modern speech
Men turn, and see the stars, and feel the free
Shrill wind beyond the close of heavy flowers,
And through the music of the languid hours,
They hear like ocean on a western beach
The surge and thunder of the Odyssey.”
—Andrew Lang (18441912)
