Responsible investing

In this brief but wide-ranging conversation, Will Mcintosh-Whyte of Rathbones and Richard Allum of the Paraplanners’ Assembly tackle the question of what ‘responsible investment’ is and whether it differs from ideas like ESG, or ‘ethical’ and ‘sustainable’ investing.

Recorded in April 2022, the discussion concludes on the question of performance and whether it’s the case that pursuing a responsible investment strategy inevitably means investors forgo potential returns by adopting more conventional strategies.
