ESG Investing Might Not Be All That It Claims To Be

On this episode of the Capitalisn’t podcast titled, The smoke and mirrors of ESG investing with Tariq Fancy, the conversation is focused on ESG investing and how we all have the wrong impression of it.

This episode’s guest, Tariq Fancy, BlackRock’s former global chief investment officer for sustainable investing, explains that ESG investing or environmental, social, and governance investing, is meant to help resolve climate change, inequality, and other issues, while also allowing investors to manage a profit. In recent years it has gained popularity because of its ability to be a win-win option. But it might actually be doing the opposite.

Fancy recently wrote a blog post with all the details of how ESG investing is making the problems it’s supposed to be improving worse.
