Best B Haviour: The repercussions of shareholder capitalism

EQ Investors’ Sophie Kennedy explains the difference between shareholder centrism and stakeholder alignment


The Best B Haviour video series is brought to you by ESG Clarity and a coalition of B Corp certified businesses to encourage better governance within financial services.

Last year, Bonhill titles ESG Clarity, DiversityQ, Portfolio Adviser, International Adviser and Expert Investor responded to industry events surrounding treatment of customers and stakeholders with the Campaign for Better Governance, and meanwhile at COP26, a coalition of B Corps companies came together to issue a call to action to financial services to implement tighter and deeper corporate governance frameworks. As a result of this shared ambition, Best B Haviour was formed.

Over the next few months, ESG Clarity will be interviewing the CEOs and senior management of B Corps companies discussing the importance of the campaigns, shareholder versus stakeholder centrism and internal governance.

In this episode, ESG Clarity’s global head of ESG insight Natalie Kenway speaks to Sophie Kennedy, joint-CEO at EQ Investors about the difference between shareholder centrism and stakeholder alignment, and how the changes in articles of incorporation can lead to positive outcomes.
