ShareIn, a platform as a service provider enabling online capital formation, sees “stellar growth” in investors seeking out investments that match their beliefs.
ShareIn can power online investment platforms for interest-focused firms looking to support environmental infrastructure, Shariah-compliant finance for SMEs, charities, as well as litigation funding.
The Edinburgh-based company reports that at the beginning of 2021, ShareIn launched a new platform for Ethex – a service that seeks to enable people to make ethical investments that fund organisations that align with personal interests while generating getting a fair return on the investment.
ShareIn states that Ethex has a community of over 20,000 committed investors and decided to update the Ethex brand and improve the customer experience by updating its website. ShareIn says it has been working with the team at Ethex on their sister platform Energise Africa, which aims to fight climate change with ethical investments in solar energy and other impact projects, since its launch in 2017.
“A new breed of investor is growing who want to make decisions themselves, investing for a future they believe in.”
Ethex and Energise Africa Director Lisa Ashford adds:
“Ethex’s new branding and website launch comes at a pivotal point in our growth, and against a backdrop of significant interest in tackling climate change as a result of the COP26 climate negotiations in Glasgow in November and a strong desire to build back better in a way that works for everyone as we emerge from the COVID 19 pandemic. Extending our existing relationship with ShareIn was the natural choice to enable Ethex to efficiently deliver enhanced functionality for our investors and rapidly accelerate the flow of people powered finance to support hundreds more organisations who are protecting the planet, empowering communities and creating fairer societies.”
