ING’s U.S. Retirement Services business will offer the ESG Managers Portfolios, socially responsible asset allocation portfolios from Pax World Management and sub-advised by Morningstar, to the defined contribution plans it administers.

The portfolios integrate environmental, social and governance factors into their investment analysis. Until now, they have only been available through financial advisers. ING is the first defined contribution provider to offer these funds to plan participants, and the firm will initially make the funds available only to its 403(b) and 457 education, government, healthcare and not-for-profit market segments.
