MoneyLion, a U.S.-based consumer digital finance platform, announced on Tuesday the launch of its new thematic investment solutions. MoneyLion reported that through thematic investing, its members may now invest in portfolios that reflect their personal preferences and interests, which includes clean energy, artificial intelligence, and social responsibility.
“The new thematic portfolios are designed as packaged solutions to meet certain investment interests or preferences of MoneyLion investors, and are offered as part of MoneyLion’s fully managed investing offering.”
MoneyLion also noted that members will be able to include their new thematic portfolios within their existing investment accounts. Dee Choubey, MoneyLion CEO, further stated:
“We’ve built an incredible managed investment platform for our members, many of whom are first-time investors, and with the launch of thematic investing, we’re allowing our members to further personalize and strengthen their MoneyLion investment accounts based on their personal interests and preferences.”
MoneyLion then revealed it will offer three new portfolio themes, powered by Global X ETFs and Wilshire. Each portfolio theme lets members invest in a carefully selected set of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) aligned to a specific topic, such as the following:
- Future Innovation: ETFs focused on disruptive technologies like robotics, artificial intelligence, and autonomous cars (powered by Global X ETFs)
- Earn & Grow: Dividend-paying equity ETFs can provide balanced and well-rounded exposures that offer higher yield with some growth (powered by Global X ETFs)
- Greater Good: ETFs aligned to companies that exhibit positive environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) characteristics (powered by Wilshire)
MoneyLion then added that investors may choose a portfolio to meet an investment preference or capitalize on a growing trend. For example, the Future Innovation portfolio is benefited by the stay-at-home economy.
