brief INSIGHT by Aberdeen Standard Investments

| It seems not a day goes by without someone in the investment world talking about the importance of Responsible Investing (RI) and ESG issues. But what do these actually mean? And why should investors care? To help answer these questions we’ve launched a Responsible Investing podcast series.

In this edition of the Responsible Investing podcast, Amanda Young interviews our Global Head of Distribution, Campbell Fleming. Campbell tells us why impact investing is particularly close to his heart. He also discusses the defining responsible investment moments in his career and explains why companies need to do more than just ticking boxes when it comes to ESG issues.

Listen to the podcast.
