The ESG (Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance) investing industry is well-known to be riddled with problems—Liz Simmie, co-founder of Honeytree Investment Management, deconstructs them and proposes a better way to do ESG. Joined by Alpha Architect CEO Wes Gray, Simmie discusses the "greenwashing" in the ESG world that is undermining the core principles of which the acronym stands for, which she believes hurts ESG’s credibility. She dissects the smoke and mirrors game of ESG ratings and explains how she has built an investment portfolio that truly embodies the ESG philosophy. Filmed on August 9, 2021.
