Abstract

The ‘COVID Crisis’ has accelerated the mainstreaming of SDG-driven investment, with pension board members (trustees) playing an increasingly active role across all asset classes, from Sacramento to Sydney: governments (debt) and CEOs (equity) are having to commit more seriously to pressing environmental, social and societal matters, or face the risk of abrupt divestment (Brazil, Facebook etc.).

Beyond financial economics and investment policy, the advent of fiduciary capitalism will have a profound impact on the way we govern our corporations and our nations.
