ImpactAlpha, February 9 — Tickr’s app allows users to invest as little as £5 ($7) in companies expanding access to education, clean water, renewable energy, sustainable food and other environmental and social impact areas. Ada Ventures has invested £2.5 million ($3.4 million) in the company.  

Retail impact

Triodos Bank U.K. launched an impact bond fund last year starting at £20 per share for individuals looking to invest in corporate, social and green bonds.

In April, OpenInvest raised $10.5 million to expand its ESG-themed robo-advisory services.

Retail impact investing platform Swell shut down in 2019 when it was “not able to achieve the scale needed to sustain operations in the current market.”
