FundCalibre Podcast – Navigating complexity: ESG and Human Rights

Dr. Paul Jourdan explores the unique ESGH approach employed by Amati, shedding light on the importance of adding the “H” for Human Rights to ESG, emphasising its significance as a separate category of investment risk. Drawing on experiences over 25 years, he discusses the blind spots in the investment community regarding human rights abuses in supply chains and their far-reaching consequences.

To mark Human Rights Day on the 10th of December, the discussion delves into the profound impact of human rights, particularly in international trading of commodities like oil and gas. Paul highlights the oversight in neglecting human rights considerations in these critical sectors, pointing out real-world implications, such as the funding of geopolitical conflicts through resource purchases.

Overall, this interview provides a comprehensive overview of Amati’s ESGH approach, offering investors a deeper understanding of responsible and ethical investment practices in the ever-evolving landscape of financial markets.
