Inside Interactive Brokers’ embrace of ESG-friendly investing
- People are calling for more transparency on environmental, social and governance issues in the investments they make.
- Interactive Brokers has launched an ESG tool that provides portfolio scoring on important values.
On today’s podcast, I’m joined by Will Peterffy and Eddy Soffer of Interactive Brokers.
Will, son of Interactive Brokers’ founder, Thomas Peterffy, is a new board member of the online brokerage and its ESG Ambassador. Interactive Brokers recently rolled out a portfolio scorecard that grades equity portfolios along several dimensions, like reducing emissions and human rights.
The pair join us on the podcast to discuss the new initiative and what customers are asking for when it comes to investing responsibly. We also talk about where this environmental, social, and governance initiative is headed from a product perspective and across the industry.
