Humanising Investment with Sir Ronald Cohen

Season 11, Episode 18,  Nov 25, 2022, 12:34 PM

Welcome to The Conduit’s podcast series on Humanising Investment. Inspired by Gillian Tett’s book, Anthrovision, this series will focus on inspiring the next generation of investors to recognise the value of responsible investing. 

Hosted by Asha Lad, Chief Investment Officer at Conduit Capital, each episode will be talking to a leading responsible investor in the institutional responsible investing space, getting to grips with each of their stories, understanding what led towards a career in the space and how they feel we can begin to humanize the finance industry. 

In this episode, Asha is joined by Sir Ronald Cohen.

Sir Ronald Cohen founded and led international private equity firm Apax Partners before, at 60, deciding to dedicate himself to the Impact Revolution. 

Sir Ronald is passionate about advancing impact - and the idea that companies need to be held to higher standards of seeking to do well (for their shareholders) and good (for the world).

He is the chairman of the Global Steering Group for Impact Investment (GSG); the author of Impact: Reshaping Capitalism to Drive Real Change, a World Street Journal bestseller, and considered to be one of the founders of the global venture capital industry.
