Founders Omid and Nima Pakseresht along with their executive team of impact and finance professionals have just secured 140% of their pre-seed target in the first 24 hours of their public crowdfunding launch from 75 investors.
Currently raising investment on Seedrs, GOODFOLIO is building a simple, transparent, and personalised ethical investment platform. GOODFOLIO enables everyday and sophisticated investors to invest in companies and industries that share their ethical values.
GOODFOLIO’s mission is to increase the flow of capital into sustainable industries and responsible companies.
Although 77% of people with over £25k in investable assets would choose sustainable investments, only 13% have already done so.
Starting with Stocks and Shares ISAs and General Investment Accounts, GOODFOLIO’s soon to be launched investment platform aims to address this gap by providing the tools and resources needed for investors to build and manage customised portfolios that align with their ethical values.
Having made substantial accomplishments to date and in a short space of time, GOODFOLIO aims to make ethical investing the norm.
- Assembled a diverse and engaged leadership team and advisory board with extended leadership experience in finance, impact and technology
- Build a valuable waiting list community of 150+ future customers with average £90k in investments
- Signed letter of intent with a UK charitable trust to use GOODFOLIO for management of $1m+ in investable assets once regulated and launched
“This is a beautiful and very inspirational project and I hope it picks up and changes the way people look at investment” waiting-list member and market research participant.
The Funds Under Management in responsible and sustainable investment funds grew by 89% between January 2019 and June 2020 to £33 billion. The top 3 incumbent UK investment platforms (Hargreaves Lansdown, interactive investor, and AJ Bell) generate an estimated ~£1bn in annual revenue.
