Abstract: Starting by establishing the importance of institutional investor activism and Socially Responsible Investment, the article goes on to investigate the effects of SRI and attempts to offer a convincing explanation on the persisting theoretical and empirical divergence. It is suggested that the positive impact of institutional investors’ activism on SRI has been empirically undermined due to the defects of current evaluation systems. Nevertheless, the passivism of institutional investors and other practical concerns determine that SRI will remain as a minor investment trend in Anglo-American countries, at least in the near future.
