A new online ethical investment platform has launched today, which its founder believes is “the first step in creating a collaborative community of ethical investors”.
Its objective is to champion positive investment, which brings about both social and financial returns and focuses on doing good, rather than simply nullifying the bad – a technique known as negative screening.
“Positive investing means investing in a business because of what it does, not what it doesn’t do”, said Ethex’s founding director Jamie Hartzell, who first spoke to Blue & Green Tomorrow about this latest venture of his in October.
“As both a social entrepreneur raising capital, and an investor looking for both a social and financial return, I found that positive investing was not as easy as it should be. Ethex changes that.
“We believe that Ethex is a game-changer – we want to do for ethical investment what fair trade and organics have done for ethical consumerism.”
All the companies available for investment through Ethex display social, environmental and financial benefits to potential investors, and the newly-launched online marketplace hopes to have at least 14 products on its shelf by the summer.
“People have lost trust in the financial system”, added Hartzell.
“Ethex goes back to first principles, allowing people to think for themselves about what they want to do with their money, financially, socially and environmentally.”
