Financial Analysts Seminar Presentation Recorded 23 Jul 2018
Extreme Responsible Investing
Why We Withdrew Finance from South Africa’s State-Owned Enterprises. . . and What We Found Out Afterward
PRI? SRI? ESG? What does “responsible investing” actually mean? In this presentation, Andrew Canter, CFA, discusses the answer to this question and more. He will discuss the role investors play in protecting South Africa’s democracy; corporate governance beyond the “tick-box” approach, and how to negotiate improvements; and finally, what to do about the abysmal debt capital market standards.
This is the archived version of a live broadcast that took place 23 July 2018 at the CFA Institute 63rd Annual Financial Analysts Seminar (FAS).
