Financial expert a man of influence


The CEO of a Truro-based financial advice company has been ranked the third highest Environment Social and Governance (ESG) social media influencer in the world by Commetric, a global media analytics company.

Worldwide Financial Planning CEO Peter McGahan said: “I am delighted to see that my social media communications on ESG are being recognised.

“ESG has arrived,” he said. “Simply put, Environmental, Social and Governance are the headings. Environmental covers how companies interact responsibly with the environment, Social covers how they conduct themselves with both internal and external communities and Governance frames how they behave in their business.

“ESG is a yardstick to measuring the sustainability and societal impact of an investment in a company or business. It has become hugely significant for businesses to provide their clients and customers with authentic social responsibility and it’s something that is at the core of what Worldwide Financial Planning do.”

Ann Vandermeulen, development manager of FSB Cornwall, said: “This is a well-deserved recognition for Peter. I’ve known him professionally for a long time and I’ve always been so impressed with his altruistic work with local communities and good causes.”
