Matthew Weatherley-White runs The CAPROCK Group, a multi-family office that focuses on impact investing. On Thursday, October 30, 2014 at 5;00 Eastern, Weatherley-White will join us for a live discussion about impact investing. Tune in here then to watch the interview live. In preparation for the interview, Weatherley-White explained, “I find the notion that capital markets should not be morally reflective laughable. Of course they reflect our morals. The question is not whether or not they should reflect our morals. The question is ‘What morals do we want them to reflect.’” Similarly, he asks capitalists to consider the impact of all of their investments, “I am a full-throated capitalist, and passionate advocate for the power of the capital markets to effect change. And I would encourage anyone who feels similarly to ask a simple question: ‘if we accept the premise that every investment decision has an impact, what is the impact we seek?’”
