Andrew Parry | Externalities, ESG disclosure and going beyond virtue signalling

In episode 55, Alex Proimos speaks with Andrew Parry is head of sustainable investment at Newton Investment Management.

This episode discusses how ESG is no longer just a fashionable acronym, how the tech platform businesses have established unfair, monopoly-like dominance that leads to negative social externalities. The conversation also looks at the challenges around reporting and disclosure, whether there are capacity constraints for ESG, how to democratise costly ESG and how to look beyond virtue signalling to being an activist of true change.
