Sustainable investment as a service

We provide our sustainable investment solutions to banks and fund providers, to help them better serve their retail investors. Our solutions include fund selection tools, sustainability data integration and user-behaviour insight.

There are billions of savings that could be invested. Together, we can create impact by converting these sleeping savings into sustainable investments to overcome social and environmental challenges – without sacrificing returns

Fund selection tools

We are developing a suite of tailored, visual, and easy tools to cut through the clutter, filter out noise and allow the retail investor to focus on the sustainability topics he/she cares about.

Sustainability data integration

We are building on the data from some of the leading data providers in the market, focussing on environmental, social and governance topics, as well as on financial performance.

User behaviour insights

It's important to understand how users select their investments, and what they really care about. We collect this data so that the fund providers can create more tailored products to better address the sustainability demands of the consumers.

Engage with retail investors

Whether it's clean energy, healthcare or diversity & inclusion - we have the tools to find right investment option for retail investors. And we'll be adding more as we go along, so let us know which ones you would like to see!

How it compares

Is impact investing a good idea? Yes, of course! We know there are many myths surrounding it, so let’s bust them!

Some people think it doesn’t earn you much money, some others think it’s complicated. Actually, 7 out of 10 people find that the complexity of the financial language is stopping them from investing.² Maybe that’s why only 39% of investors invest sustainably. However, it’s actually quite easy and very competitive.²

Good Performance

The returns from sustainable investing are very competitive and are comparable to conventional investment alternatives.³

Impact can be measured

The performance of funds is reported, and companies doing good are happily sharing their successes. So you can directly see the impact you're making, and we'll help you keep track of it!

Easy to get started

Sustainable investing is getting increasing focus of investors - it's our dream to make it the new normal. Getting started is as easy as picking out a cause in our app, and putting a few Euros towards it - simple. We'll cut through the jargon and guide you as your portfolio grows.
