The law of unintended consequences – latest ETF Express podcast


April’s edition of the ETF Express podcast Off the Record, in partnership with Truss Edge, sees us delving into the retail audience with a conversation with Jeff Prestridge, Personal Finance Editor at Mail on Sunday and The Daily Mail, and Allan Lane, co-founder of Algo-Chain. Jeff has strong and challenging views on ETFs, more on their marketing, saying a lot more could be done to make them more appealing to investors and dismissing the information available on ETF websites as ‘almost unpalatable’. Prestridge also has controversial views on ESG, which he describes as ‘not fit for purpose’.

Listen to our heated discussion which covers RDR and Lane’s view of the law of unintended consequences which in turn explains Prestridge’s observation that RDR has made it difficult for the man or woman on the street to get financial advice.
