Investment opportunities shouldn’t be limited to the wealthy. Or only to the most educated. Financial equality should be a key driver for the modern society, particularly since our investments can help us build a better tomorrow.
How do you ensure that your money is going to the causes that you care about, that you want to see thrive? The financial markets are not transparent, and greenwashing is occluding real impact made by some.
Our insights shed light into the market and help retail clients understand where their money is making an impact. Not just by fund names, but at detailed constituent / company level.
Now the retail clients have the power to decide on a knowledge base. They decide which company deserves investments. Money talks, so if a company does not want to get left behind, they need to put their money where their mouth is and focus on sustainability and transparency to convince investors to support them.
Democratising finance is only possible if everyone has access to it. Sustainable investment cannot be limited to the wealthy, or the highly educated who understand the ins and outs of the financial market. It needs to be made accessible to every aspiring investor.
We provide this access. Impact oriented, transparent and jargon-free. Our solution makes it possible for everyone to not only understand the impact of financial products, but to invest directly through our platform. Simple, direct, efficient – and not limited to those with large savings, but also the average-income person.
Sustainability means so much more than focussing on climate change and CO2 emissions. While climate change is obviously an important topic, we should not lose focus. Our future world, the world of our kids, will need so much more. We need equal opportunities for everyone, fight poverty, deliver clean water, and address many other issues.
At the same time, everyone has different opinions and goals in life. That’s why we do not advocate one sustainable cause over another, but rather give the retail investors the insights and tools to decide themselves – and generate impact where they want it.
In 2015, all United Nations member states adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This provides a blueprint for a peaceful, safe world for people and the planet, now and in the future.
We use these goals as structure for our analysis, as it provides a common, accepted framework for comparing sustainability around the world.
The 17 goals set out by the UN are:
We believe that everyone should be able to identify at least with some of these goals. This is why investing directly into funds that adress these goals not only gives you financial rewards. It allows you to do good, while doing well.
Let’s use our money to transform the world. Let’s make a positive, lasting impact.
Ü Impact is a FinTech in the Sustainable Investment sector. Our vision is to make sustainable investing accessible to everyone. We are working with fund providers to create a product that will make sustainable investment available for everyday individual investors, bringing together valuable sustainability/ESG company insights and making it accessible to allow retail investors to generate real impact with their money.
