According to the Sustainable Business Institute (SBI), publisher of the European market platform www.sustainable-investment.org, a total of 410 sustainable retail funds were approved for distribution in Germany, Austria and / or Switzerland as of 30.06.2016. By 30.06.2016, these 410 funds were invested with about 61 billion Euros (all tranches) or about 45 billion Euros (only retail tranches). At the end of 2015 the SBI registered 400 funds that were invested with a total of about 45 billion Euros (only retail tranches).

The following data is based on both the volume of all tranches and the performance of the funds published on www.sustainable-investment.org
 
By the end of the second quarter of 2016, 16 new funds were added to the SBI funds database. These funds were either launched in 2016, have adapted their strategy to "sustainability" or were already registered in other countries. These funds were invested with approximately 1.3 billion Euros. Six funds have been closed since the beginning of the year or merged with other funds.
 
31 billion Euros were invested in 209 equity funds. The performance of the equity funds that were already launched in late 2015 was very diverse: at the end of the second quarter of 2016 it ranged from plus 26% and minus 24%. It should be noted that the nature of the equity funds differs greatly: These funds include broadly based international funds as well as specialized funds with a regional focus, and also technology and specialist funds.
 
12 billion Euros were invested in 85 fixed income funds. The performance of these funds that were already launched in late 2015 ranged between plus 13% and minus 2% in the second quarter of 2016.

12 billion Euros were invested in 74 balanced funds and 403 million Euros in 11 umbrella funds. The performance of the balanced funds that had been launched in late 2015 was between plus 7% and minus 26% in the second quarter of 2016. The performance of the umbrella funds that were launched in late 2015 was between plus 0% and minus 10%. Looking at both mixed and umbrella funds it should be noted that the proportion of shares in the portfolio differs significantly - with a corresponding effect on risk and return.
 
2.4 billion Euros were invested in the 18 sustainable ETFs. The performance of the ETFs that were already launched at the end of 2015 was between plus 10% and minus 18% in the second quarter.
 
1.8 billion Euros were invested in the 6 Microfinance Funds. The performance ranged between plus 1% and minus 1%.
