Ethex is a “positive investing” platform, where investors can put their money directly into businesses whose missions and impact they support, which also offer a financial return.

You can browse, research and compare a range of positive investments on Ethex.

You can then invest directly in the project or business using the site.

Ethex also offers a portfolio “investment tracking” service for investors for an annual fee of ¬£30.

It is a not-for-profit organisation funded by a range of trusts and foundations.

We like¬†Ethex because of its own social and environmental policies: it’s 60% female, the salary ratio from highest to lowest paid employees is 2.5:1 and staff even get to work by bike or foot.

We think Ethex could possibly improve by registering with the Financial Conduct Authority.
