Through our platform, we offer low-minimum access to leading climate investment funds, allowing individual investors to maximize the climate impact of their savings.


Offering investment products to first-time private market investors comes with great responsibility. It means we need to take good care of the capital people entrust us with. We also need to ensure that we pursue our mission within the boundaries of the regulated financial world.

You will have an important role in managing the the customer due diligence process to onboard investors in our climate funds. We also need your help to subscribe to the global top-tier climate funds that we invest in through our platform.

While being compliant is our highest priority, you will also keep a continuous critical eye on what is truly needed to provide the optimal customer experience. You will support our drive to use technology to improve and automate where we can to enable us to keep accelerating the growth of investors on our platform.
