With Joe Biden pushing for a mammoth infrastructure package as well as his clean energy initiatives taken through executive orders, ESG and infrastructure ETFs offer promising opportunities for investors looking to dip their toes in these growing themes, says Chris Hummer, a senior investment strategist at FlexShares. ESG investing has been gaining traction for years now, but the pandemic and new administration have pushed the popularity of environmental, social, and corporate governance criteria through the roof.Within his first month in office, Joe Biden signed climate change executive orders, rejoined the Paris Agreement, and nominated ESG investment allies like Marty Walsh for higher-ranking government positions. As for infrastructure, the pandemic has highlighted our need for cell phone towers, data centers and fiber optic cables. The recent power shortage in Texas this week also helps shine a light on how dependent we are on these types of infrastructures.
