Episode 3: Fiduciary duty and sustainable investing
Today’s episode is the first of a series podcast we will do covering different sections of the Duty of Ownership working group paper: with great power comes great responsibility. Fiduciary duty is a core responsibility for trustees and it has become a very complex matter when blended in with sustainable and impact investing in recent years. The Duty of Ownership working group spent fair amount time discussing and debating what the boundary of what asset owners can do, challenges they face, the changes that are happening and the wider system around it. In this episode, Roger Urwin will share his thoughts on this area.
