(Barron’s) Most wealthy investors say that doing good for society and the environment are practices they live by, but only 39% globally are investing in sync with these values, according to survey results published early Wednesday by UBS.

The real stunner in the UBS research: Just 12% of wealthy individuals in the U.S. have at least 1% or more of their portfolio assets in sustainable investments versus a majority of the wealthy surveyed in China (60%), Brazil (53%), and the United Arab Emirates (53%).
