Chaos to Confidence…with new investment strategies like ESG:


Environmental, Social and Governance or ESG is considered one of the hottest investment themes today for clients and investment professionals. A record amount of money has flowed into sustainable focused ETFs and open-end mutual funds in 2019. But what actually is it and how do you define how to invest in companies that say they are doing it? As a former regulator and CMIO of the CFTC, Andy Busch explains how ESG came about, what the risks are and how ESG is trickier for investing than it looks. How does it fit into a bigger picture of the economy? After working for the agency that approved bitcoin, Andy brings a unique perspective to explaining why the SEC is not likely to approve ESG and regulate it.

About Andrew Busch

Andy’s unconventional path to finance, politics and the economy has taught him that the big picture is filled in by small details and requires unconventional thinking to see them. He was number six out of seven kids that taught him to scrap, shout and fight for the last piece of food at dinner. He brought this determination to his career and to his insights into the world. Before he went into finance, he painted street curbs, he mowed lawns, he worked construction, and he ran his own painting company. In finance, he traded currencies and wrote research on the markets during the 1985 Plaza Accord; the 1998 Russian default; and to the 2008 global financial crisis. He’s advised major mutual funds, hedge funds, US Treasury Secretaries and the White House. In 2017, he became the nation’s first Chief Market Intelligence Officer at the CFTC and connected with the SEC, the US Treasury, the Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Reserve of New York and the White House.
