It’s Episode 32 of Magic Markets – The ESG Enforcer
This week the Finance Ghost and I get stuck in with a discussion on Environmental, Social and Governance issues with Tracey Davies. Tracey is the Executive Director of Just Share SA. Just Share is a non-profit shareholder activism and responsible investment organization. They promotes the use of investor power for a fairer South Africa.
We dig in and highlight some of the shenanigans going on in the corporate world both globally and in SA. We also discuss how the wool often gets pulled over investors’ eyes….
Shareholder activism is alive as showcased by the Engine No. 1 proxy battle with Exxon. We also touch on how Dark Money pools influence the narrative on major sustainability and governance issues in the interest of ‘vested interests’ rather than the public good.
It is a wide-ranging show with the discussion getting quite heated at times… You absolutely MUST listen in on this one!
