TED talks: Investing as if the future matters – Graham Sinclair


Investors should look to the long-term and help create a future that looks a lot different to today, says Graham Sinclair in this week’s featured TED talk.

Sinclair is a sustainable investment strategist at consultancy firm SinCo and co-founder of the not-for-profit Africa Sustainable Investment Forum project.

Speaking at TEDxTableMountain in South Africa last year, he said that if investors fail to take a long-term approach – and therefore do not include environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors in their decisions – they are “investing in a future that probably doesn’t matter“.

His challenge to the TED community and the investment world is to think about the future you want to create, and invest in a way that helps set it in motion.
