Know How Their Money Is Invested
Recent times have highlighted that, when it comes to investment, ignorance isn’t bliss. The responsible investment funds that Money Matters recommends provide listings of their investments. This transparency enables Money Matters' clients to know where their money is invested. The funds Money Matters recommends also provide regular reports on their activities and further detailed information.
Quality of ESG reporting has developed significantly
Furthermore, the underlying businesses in which Money Matters clients are invested are encouraged to provide transparent reporting on ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) performance along with financial performance. Rodger was an early researcher on this type of reporting in New Zealand when in 1983 he was awarded a Senior Prize in Accountancy reflecting his research on corporate social reporting. He pursued this interest in his subsequent academic research and applied it in corporate sustainability reporting projects with the NZ Business Council for Sustainable Development and World Business Council for Sustainable Development. These days the quality and quantity of corporate ESG reporting has developed significantly.
