Survey finds 98% wealth managers support ‘green’ nuclear energy

A new report by ETF platform HANetf finds that most wealth managers believe nuclear energy should be considered “green” and a significant contributor in the transition to net zero.

HANetf’s recent ‘Thematic & Digital Assets Review’, covering January to June 2023, offers insights into market trends and expert commentary on themes like defence, carbon credits and digital assets.

The Review, subtitled ‘A New Dawn for Markets?’, also includes a survey of 50 wealth managers, which revealed overwhelming confidence in the ongoing market recovery, with 98% expressing positivity. Notably, 98% of respondents consider nuclear energy “green” and a crucial part of the transition to net-zero emissions.

Furthermore, nearly 80% of wealth managers highlighted the increasing importance of geopolitics in their fund selection. 

In response, HANetf launched the Future of Defence UCITS ETF (NATO) to capitalise on growing geopolitical tensions and increased NATO+ allies’ spending.

Last year, European Commissioners faced accusations of greenwashing after allowing gas and nuclear to be given ‘green’ status under EU sustainable finance rules.

Hector McNeil, co-CEO, and co-founder of HANetf, emphasised the review’s significance in providing investors with vital insights into thematic ETFs, crypto, and commodity ETCs: “As the survey results in the Review show, wealth managers overwhelmingly believe that markets will continue their recovery in 2023.”
