In this episode, we have a chat with Adam Verwey – co-founder and director of Future Super. Adam started in the ethical investing space with 9 years at Australian Ethical Investment and was a candidate for the greens in the 2013 federal election. He co-founded Future Super in 2014.
Adam is passionate about the future of Australia’s climate change policy and has a long history in ethical investment, with expertise in superannuation, ESG (environmental, social and governance) research and constructing ethical sharemarket indices. Since we last had him on the show, a lot has changed in both the ethical investing and superannuation spaces, so we decided to get him back for an update.
In this episode, you will learn:
- If Adam thinks Tesla is an ethical company
- Where Amazon sits on his ethical scale
- How a kid from Broken Hill went on to start Australia’s first fossil-free super fund
- How COVID-19 has affected the Australian superannuation industry
- How COVID-19 has affected the ethical investing universe
