Rob has a pioneering spirit, and embodies the power of having clear non-financial goals. In this enlightening and energising interview, Rob

  • Talks about two of his companies: Redington, a pension fund management company with a strong corporate social responsibility ethos; and Mallowstreet, an online community that helps companies achieve financial security. Both are Certified B Corporations.

  • Describes how his undergraduate dissertation on a glacier in the alps, and engagement in subjects around loss of biodiversity at COP26, led him to co-found his new start up, Rebalance Earth. It’s a Community Interest Company ‘CIC’ and their intent as they grow is to become a B-Corp.

  • Explains how Rebalance Earth takes a market mechanism approach to tackling climate crisis issuesthrough ‘nature credits’ and functions as a data source for natural capital.

  • Discusses the lack of financial education in British culture and how living in Argentina as a child informed his attitude to money and his career in finance.

  • Recalls the difficulties and successes of his first business, explaining the process of learning from mistakes and how you can enhance decision making.

  • Expresses his hopes for Rebalance Earth, expanding on the positive impacts he wants to make for the planet and for people through his business.
