    Episode 18 - Guy Opperman

    For the final episode of series 1, we speak with the Minister for Pensions and Financial Inclusion, Guy Opperman. We're very lucky to get an overview of his vision for pensions in the UK, ways we might collectively help fight the climate crisis, and we talk horses. Unmissable!

    Episode 17 - Simon Dietz

    Episode 17 - Simon Dietz

    This week we're talking Transition Pathway Initiative with Professor Simon Dietz, a man who belies his 71 years of age (according to Google anyway) and talks climate, climate modelling and climate economics with wit, charm and dry humour. We had a lot of fun hanging out in London together last week and hopefully that comes across in the show. Quote of the day: all models are wrong but some models are useful!

    Rory Sullivan talks Sinead O'Connor on his book review this week https://www.penguin.co.uk/books/316/316809/rememberings/9781844885411.html. Nothing compares 2 U Rory.

    Episode 16 - Dan Gardiner and Valentin Jahn

    This week we're talking Net Zero, with Dan Gardiner of the Institutional Investor Group on Climate Change (IIGCC) and Valentin Jahn of the Transition Pathway Initiative (TPI). These experts take us on a journey looking at what net zero means (it's not as straightforward as it sounds), how a company comes up with a net zero business plan (it's not as straightforward as it sounds) and what investors need to do to help the transition to a net zero economy (it's not as straightforward as it sounds - you get the picture).

    Rory Sullivan is back talking about the weird world of book collecting - http://www.nicholasroyle.com/white-spines.html

    Episode 15 - Nazmeera Moola and Victoria Barron

    This week we try a slightly different format, featuring Nazmeera Moola, Head of South Africa Investments at Ninety One Asset Management, and Victoria Barron, Head of Sustainable Investments at BT Pension Fund. We discuss how to go about investing sustainably in Africa, how to tie sustainability to sovereign debt, and ask just how do we measure the carbon footprint of a nation anyway?

    Rory Sullivan is back with yet another 5 lessons - never fall for the charms of a private equity baron! https://www.penguin.co.uk/books/316/316807/the-key-man/9780241439104.html

    Episode 14 - Claudia Chapman

    This week we are joined by the head of stewardship and main architect of the Financial Reporting Council's new Stewardship Code, Claudia Chapman. This week the FRC announced the very first signatories to the new UK Code, and we discuss the challenges and opportunities for both asset owners and asset managers in using the code as a reporting and communication tool. Claudia is a fantastic speaker, so this is an extremely easy listen!

    Rory Sullivan turns full-on influencer this week, with 5 life lessons from a classic https://www.google.co.uk/books/edition/What_They_Don_t_Teach_You_at_Harvard_Bus/vQn5jwEACAAJ?hl=en

    Episode 13 - John Howchin

    This week we have the holder of the best job title in all of responsible investment, John Howchin. We talk about the mine tailings initiative, how we can use that as a model, and where we might want to use that model next. Some really interesting discussions on what the next steps in responsible ownership for large asset owners might look like - a Marshall Plan for climate stewardship. Gripping stuff.

    Rory Sullivan pens a love letter to Roddy Doyle in this week's chat about books.
