Why we do what we do.
Please see our short video, it helps explain everything.
Keeping it simple
A quick guide to some of the termonology we use in this site.
Impact investing refers to investments "made into companies, organisations, and funds with the intention to generate a measurable, beneficial social or environmental impact alongside a financial return."
Impact investments provide capital to address social and/or environmental issues.
A blockchain is a decentralised, distributed and public digital ledger that is used to record transactions across many computers. This allows the participants to verify and audit transactions inexpensively. The use of a blockchain removes the characteristic reproducibility from a digital asset. It confirms that each unit of value was transferred only once, solving the long-standing problem of double spending. Blockchains is quicker, safer and cheaper than with traditional systems.
Is the name we have given to the purpose built blockchain platform designed to allow Investors to buy direct into Impact Investments.
Environmental, social and governance (ESG) refers to the three central factors in measuring the sustainability and ethical impact of an investment or company. These criteria help to better determine the future financial performance of companies.
