Anthony Malakian, US editor of Waters, and James Rundle, news editor of Waters, record a weekly podcast touching on the biggest stories in financial technology.

 

Anthony returns to the podcast after a short vacation, and he and James discuss how capital markets firms are embracing the environmental, social and governance (ESG) sector. They then take a look at Regulation Systems Compliance and Integrity (Reg SCI) and examine whether or not the SEC is truly focused on the new mandate. Finally, they once again give their thoughts on the latest episode of Game of Thrones.

2:30 A primer on the ESG space, and why it’s unique.
4:30 Why invest in a company with high ESG standards?
11:15 When considering ESG investment, it’s important to look at peer groups.

15:15 This past week, Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) expressed his concerns over the SEC’s transparency—or lack thereof—when it comes to Reg SCI.
18:15 Does the SEC have their act together to be able to properly enact Reg SCI?
20:15 Internet of Things-related challenges will make Reg SCI all the more important in the future.

23:35 James says that Sunday’s episode of Game of Thrones was one of the greatest episodes of TV ever. Anthony is sad that the White Walkers still haven’t come to wipe out the Starks.
