Matthew Weatherley-White is an impact investment advisor at Caprock, but his personality and his passion for life stretch far beyond his day-job. He’s as interested in hiking in the mountains and in crafting a lifestyle, as he is to reshaping markets for the better.
He’s inquisitive and he’s a deep thinker, and most importantly he’s not afraid of telling it how it is.
We dug into the political stalemates that both the US and Australia are facing in trying to deal with climate change. Matthew spoke passionately about the potential for capitalism to be re-oriented towards environmental resiliency, and to move beyond its very narrow focus of profit-maximisation.
And he weighed into the debate on whether investors in public markets can influence the companies they buy, he didn’t hold back. I had a ball speaking with Matthew, we could’ve gone on for hours. I just hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
And please do stay tuned till after the credits when Matthew gives us a breakdown of two radical new policy concepts coming out of the US, those being Opportunity Zones, as well as the Green New Deal. You may’ve heard of them but Matthew’s working closely on this stuff so his breakdown is really solid.
