The Responsible Investment Show: ESG & transparency in investing from the Morningstar London conference - Featuring San Lie of Morningstar, Gina Miller of SCM, James Donald of Lazard & Saker Nusseibeh of Hermes
This is the Responsible Investment show. Morningstar, the investment research and management firm, recently held its annual Investment Conference with social and ethically aware investing as one of the central themes. The event comes a year after Morningstar unveiled plans to launch the industry's first sustainability ratings index for global mutual and exchange traded funds. So what prompted that decision? Patrick Jones went to the company's conference where he put that question to San Lie, Director of Manager Research at Morningstar Benelux. But how transparent are your investments? Industry experts say that a lack of fee transparency in many funds is stinging buyers with hidden charges -- in some cases they're so high the investments could lose money. It's claimed some unscrupulous fund managers may be exploiting the lack of transparency for their own ends. Matt Cox was also at the Morningstar Conference and he asked Gina Miller a founding partner of SCM and an advocate of fee transparency, about how opaque charging can hurt investors. And finally, James Donald of Lazard Asset Management told the Morningstar conference how his company screens for Environment and Social Governance or - ESG - in companies that operate in emerging markets. Share Radio reporter Patrtick Jones caught up with him and asked him about the ESG qualities it looks for in emerging market businesses.

Crowdfunders: Lending Club CEO exits, equity crowdfunding with ET Index & a new funding for Lendinvest
This is 'Crowdfunders', the show that covers the fast-growing world of alternative finance and we've got a very busy show for you today. The big news this week is over the pond in the US. The CEO of one of the big peer-to-peer sites in the US, Lending Club, has left the company under a cloud. Apparently one investor was buying loans on the platform that were riskier than he realised. Some commentators argue that this story is a major blow to the alternative finance industry. We'll find out more. We'll also be looking at a equity crowdfunding campaign for a company called ET Index - it provides information on companies' carbon emissions for investors. And we'll also find out about a big new source of funding for the peer-to-peer site, Lendinvest. Beginning with the Lending Club story, Ed Bowsher begins by talking to Ryan Weeks from the Altfi website.
