Social and environmental investment platform The Big Exchange launches today with a mission to make everyone’s money count for more.
Co-founded by The Big Issue and a coalition of industry partners, The Big Exchange is a simple, online marketplace offering everyone easy access to 36 funds that create positive impact for people and the planet.
The website gives customers the opportunity to choose investments that match their personal values and put their money into tax efficient accounts. Options include an ISA for adults and a JISA for children, or a General Investment Account with regular deposits starting at £25 a month.
