Fund manager boycotts ‘liberal’ companies opposing Georgia voting laws, freedom of speech

Companies have taken political sides in regards to the recent Georgia voting laws.

Hundreds of companies, including Amazon, Starbucks, Netflix, and Facebook, have released a joint statement this week saying that “we must ensure the right to vote for all of us,” seemingly rebuking the changes to Georgia’s voting system that some have argued to be more restrictive for voters.

Tom Carter, president of the American Conversative Values ETF (ACVF) said that politics do not belong in the C-Suite.

“We believe those CEOs should not put their own values in front of shareholder values in regards to political-type decisions,” Carter told David Lin, anchor for Kitco News.
