On this episode…
We explored the unique approach that the Regnan team takes in measuring the impact that public companies are having.
It’s not easy, it’s a secondary market, and there’s a long list of other shareholders who have competing priorities.
But outfits like Regnan are slowly building respect in the market, and companies are realising that even though they may not have a material shareholding, it’s worth engaging with them, because they’re a smart bunch, and they want to help.
Impact investing is here to stay.
My key takeaway this week…
They use the problem as the baseline (rather than the company), and work to find the organisations that are best positioned to solve it.
