New investment platform to join impact-investing movement

The Big Exchange has been heralded as the UK’s first actively-managed social, environmental and impact investment platform, co-founded by The Big Issue and a coalition of finance partners.

The online market-place offers consumers access to 36 funds that create positive social and environmental impact run by 11 fund managers. Investors can choose investments that match their values and put them into tax efficient accounts: an ISA for adults and a JISA for children, from £25 a month. There is also a General Investment Account available.

The Big Exchange is the first investment service that shows consumers a simple summary of how much positive impact on people’s lives and the environment an investment fund is making through a Gold, Silver or Bronze rating.

Nigel Kershaw OBE, chair of The Big Exchange and of The Big Issue Group, commented: “We created The Big Exchange to transform the financial system and give the opportunity for everybody with savings to invest in funds that give them a financial return as well as making a positive impact on the world around them.”

Financial partners to the project include Aberdeen Standard, Columbia Threadneedle, Nordea, Pictet and Quilter.
