How ESG Metrics Work And Why All Investors Should Care

“The Conscious Investor” is presented by Nuveen.

Martin Kremenstein, head of retirement and ETF solutions at Nuveen, explains how ESG metrics serve as an indicator of quality and can be used as a risk management tool.

According to research from MSCI, companies in the bottom ESG quintile have been twice as likely to suffer a catastrophic loss (over 95% cumulative loss) within three years.

MSCI downgraded Equifax to the lowest ESG rating on cybersecurity concerns a year before the data breach was announced.

Kremenstein says that Facebook was excluded from Nuveen’s NuShares ESG Large-Cap Growth ETF from the time it launched in December 2016. He explains, “it scored relatively poorly, compared to other tech companies over data privacy concerns.”

A Literal Russian Troll Showed Up To Zuckerberg’s Senate Hearing (HBO)

Amanda Werner is internet famous for their antics at congressional hearings. And yesterday, when the most famous man in the world of the internet met the Senate, Werner decided to try some antics again.

It didn’t work. But Werner isn’t sweating it.

In October 2017, Werner — a public interest lawyer and campaign activist — dressed as the Monopoly Man and sat right behind the witnesses at a congressional hearing over the Equifax data breach. All day on the cable nets, there was Werner, twirling the Monopoly Man’s moustache as the witnesses form Equifax sweated under questioning.

The image went viral, and Werner became something of a celebrity for wonky progressives. On Tuesday, as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg sat for his marathon Senate hearing, Werner hoped to replicate the Monopoly Man moment. But this time, Werner was dressed as “Russian Troll.”

VICE News was there as Werner tried and failed to make lightning strike twice. It’s an effort Werner calls a victory.

Who Was The Internet’s Biggest Villain In 2017? | Yesterday On The Internet (HBO)

2017, what a hell of a year. It was a year that seemed to last an eternity, yet pass by like a car crash. And through it all, countless people — and things — spent the year unwittingly vying for the title of the biggest villain on the internet.

With many worthy nominees, it’s going to be a tight race: Twitter is nominated for doubling the character limit for double the harassment; Equifax is in the running for its monumental data breach that involved an unbelievable chronology of mismanagement, and Ajit Pai has emerged as a strong favorite thanks to his success in defeating net neutrality.

Who will win? Place your bets — using your preferred volatile cryptocurrency — and watch.
