Investors today are seeking value beyond straight monetary returns. With mounting evidence of climate change's impact on the lives and livelihoods of people across the world and the growing demand for social equity, investors have gotten serious about backing corporations and funds with a demonstrated commitment to environmental and social responsibility.

Responsible investing has been around in one form or another for quite some time. Pacifists may choose not to invest in companies that manufacture weapons. Environmentalists may choose to invest in companies that produce durable products from natural materials.

We have Rina Neoh, Partner & Co Founder of Ficus Venture Capital with its flagship RM60 million fund, Ficus SEA and the world's first shariah compliant venture capitalist joining us later.

Our question to you is “Are you more concerned about your returns when investing or do environmental and social responsible companies take precedence when deciding?”
