🌱 ETF stands for exchange-traded fund. It is essentially a pooled investment fund that passively tracks an index of stocks or bonds. The ETF buys each of the underlying stocks or bonds that comprise such index.

🌱 The philosophy behind using ETFs is that you will hold shares in many large, global companies. This allows for greater diversification of your investment, lower fees and better liquidity.

🌱 It’s quite similar to a mutual fund in that it’s a lot of stocks combined together into one investment. However, unlike mutual funds which only trade once per day after the market has closed, an ETF can be bought or sold on a stock exchange just the same as a regular stock.

🌱 There are already more than 3000 sustainable funds around the world, but the focus of ESG funds on sustainability and impact varies a lot. So you need to look beyond the label and get to know different sustainable investing strategies. This is why people still need help in navigating and investing in the most highly ranked sustainable funds. We aim to make it easy, even for beginner investors.

Finding the best sustainable ETFs and setting up a diversified green investment portfolio does not need to be difficult.
