Socially minded? Worried about how your money is being invested? Then this platform is for you. Freshly minted in October 2020, The Big Exchange only provides access to investments that have a positive impact on the world. It gives ethically minded investors the opportunity to make their money work harder for them as well the planet and the people on it.
It’s no surprise that it is co-founded by the Big Issue (also its largest shareholder) whose mission is to dismantle poverty by creating opportunity through self-help, social trading and business solutions.
Investors can open an ISA, JISA or a GIA with a minimum investment of just £25pm or £100 lump sum. Investors can choose from three three risk-rated portfolios (or bundles as it calls them) or create their own portfolio from the list of funds. It currently has 36 funds from 11 managers and is in the process of adding another 10 funds from two fund managers.
3D Investing worked with The Big Exchange to build a unique impact assessment methodology based on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (see here), while Square Mile Investment Consulting and Research has designed the allocation framework and selects the funds for risk-rated fund bundles.Visit The Website
