Together we can shape the future
We’re on a mission to help people achieve financial security and change the world at the same time.
Who we are
We are a diverse team of financial professionals, scientists, activists, developers, and researchers who want to change the way you see investing.
Currently, traditional impact investing is reserved for the wealthy who have the means to have a financial advisor which is uncommon for the average investor.
Many funds or services are branded as being socially conscious or sustainable, but we want to be the first service that gets the job done. No hiding fossil fuel investments. No misleading metrics. Just highly curated personalized portfolios and the truth about how your money is impacting the world.
Core principles we adhere to every step of the way
It’s never too early to set a goal and start investing for your future. If you’ve ever felt like investing is overwhelming, you’re not alone. We’re here to change that. Our team of financial and sustainability specialists analyze hundreds of companies to balance your values with long-term performance.
We believe in the power of the people, and together, our investments can change the world. Did you know that the largest “sustainable” fund includes companies like Exxon Mobile and Amazon? It’s easy to make claims about social equity and sustainability. We back ours up.
We promise to hold every company and fund in our portfolio accountable to your values and to remove them if they fail to live up to our collective expectations. We are determined to give you the most accurate look at your portfolio’s impact, and help you shape the future.
We’re on a mission to enable everyone to generate measurable environmental and social impact alongside a financial return.
Research shows that to realize a vision for a sustainable future, we need large corporations to get on board and not just pin responsibility on individuals. Companies are not going to wake up tomorrow and be better for the planet, but as shareholders, we can harness the power of our money and hold them accountable.
The ultra-wealthy already shape the world with their investments, but why should they be the only ones driving change in our world? By investing in social and environmental change, companies will follow suit. Money talks, so make it loud!
Where we started
Our journey began with a simple idea: to provide access to impact investing to the everyday investor.
While many companies offered “impact investing” and “green portfolios,” we noticed they weren’t giving people the full picture.
Most investment solutions accessible to the average investor use green labels and eco-marketing to make you think you’re doing good when actually you’re helping big oil stay in power. This didn’t sit well with us so we decided to provide the first solution that was genuine and transparent.
Where are we now
We offer a personalized portfolio that is geared towards your values so you can put your money where your heart is.
By democratizing impact investing, we are growing a community of financial activists voting with their dollars. We empower you to see the tangible effects your money has on our world, from promoting diversity in board leadership to providing people with access to clean water.
We continue to work towards a more sustainable future through our partnerships and our commitment to transparent impact measurement and reporting so you can see the direct impact your investment has on the world.
We want a more green, just, and equitable future.
We know that systemic changes do not happen overnight, but at the current pace, it won’t happen even over decades. To accelerate our transition to a more sustainable future, we need the largest players in the economy, corporations, to play their part. However, companies won’t transition away from “business as usual” unless they have incentives to do so.
And what better incentive is out there than money? Shifting our investments into companies that are the drivers of change rather than the ones following the status quo is a powerful tool of financial activism. By democratizing impact investing, we can be the drivers of systemic change by collectively voting with our dollars.
We are proud partners of change makers delivering environmental and social impact
