The FinReg Pod

Sep 13, 2021

Tariq Fancy is Founder and CEO of The Rumie Initiative and the former Chief Investment Officer for Sustainable Investing at BlackRock. His recent three-part series, “The Secret Diary of a Sustainable Investor”, argues that ESG/sustainable investing is intellectually bankrupt and is damaging to the most important causes it purports to support. Tariq joins The FinReg Pod to discuss how he went from an ESG evangelist to ESG critic and why the private sector is ill-equipped to address climate change on its own.
