Susheela Peres da Costa is Deputy MD at Regnan; an Australian based institutional investors initiative that does research, engagement and advocacy based on its decade-long processes for the systematic identification of otherwise under-analysed investment risks (aka ESG). She is also a director of the Responsible Investment Association of Australasia.
In my role, I see first-hand how intermediation creates obstacles for companies in managing for the long term. My observation is that this irregularity appears to repeat throughout the investment value chain, and constrains each participant’s ability to take a system-wide view of risk. I’m interested in bigger-picture thinking.
