98: Does ESG investing lead to better returns for investors?

You’ve likely heard terms like ESG investing, sustainable investing, impact investing, socially responsible investing and others. But are they all the same? Today’s guest is the head of ESG at Research Affiliates. And we’re going to tackle some important questions: 

  • Does ESG lead to better returns for investors? 
  • If you don’t invest in ESG tilted portfolios, are you against the environment,  or social and governance goals? 
  • Who determines whether a portfolio or investment is ESG compliant? 
  • Is it too subjective? 

All that and much more on this episode of Mostly Money with guest Ari Polychronopoulos of Research Affiliates.
