With COP26 having just finished, ESG is back on investors agenda but so far it hasn't delivered. We get Matt Jellicoe of OnePlanetCapital on to discuss why and what we can do about it.

Matt draws on his experience of setting up a new fund that is environmentally focused, and finding out that the way ESG is applied to investments wasn't helpful. We discuss the difference between ESG and genuine impact investments and how this is leaving advisers and investors somewhat confused.

We also talk about the extent this is a binary categorisation or whether investments exist on a spectrum, how the UN Sustainable Development Goals seem to generating a common language and how close we are to getting clarity so investors can get what they want: investments that are doing good things.

No single recommendation from Matt, but he did suggest the histories that Winston Churchill wrote.
