They also mentioned that achieving the SDGs may create $12T+ in international market opportunities by 2030. By making it easier for everyone “to understand the impact of their investments, we can help prevent the catastrophes that face our planet/people,” the firm noted.
They pointed out that those in their 20s & 30s are “the most frequent entrants to the stock market in Britain & 95% of millennials are interested in responsible investing.”
Etcho “aspires to be the solution for investors wishing to understand the impact of their portfolio yet remain in control of their investments,” the firm added.

The company also mentioned:
“We aim to develop a freemium model with deeper sustainability analysis & access to a wider universe of stocks for premium users. We will also look to monetise some content for non-paying users e.g. talks, through both non-subscribers & sponsorships. We have completed our prototype & launched the waitlist, are planting trees in Ghana & restoring Oysters. We aim to launch our MVP in Q1 2022.”
