Our Impact

We’re on a mission to make sustainable financial planning the default.

It’s time to challenge the norm

What is financial planning and how is it unsustainable?

Our sustainable financial planning principles

We think that all financial planning should be sustainable financial planning and we openly share our methodology with our competitors.

We take time to understand how different risks will apply at different stages in your life. We factor in the costs or opportunities created by dealing with these risks.

Our theory of change

We want to build an economy of the future that enables people to live well, within the ecological ceiling imposed by planetary boundaries.


Change the world by changing money.


Change money by changing the rules of the game.


To change the rules we need to collaborate with partners, have influence with them and demonstrate best practice and thought leadership

Impact 11

We strive to be a force for good in our clients' lives so they go on to be a force for good in the world.

Our biggest environmental effect, by a country mile, is how our clients are invested. We help our clients become more resilient and environmentally friendly by showing them the environmental and social impact of their money and by supporting them in making better long term choices. For most people, most of the time (and certainly for our clients) how they invest and where they bank is the biggest impact they can have.

The theme of this years impact report is ‘System Change’.  Read on to find out how we are intervening in the financial planning system in order to bring about wider societal change.  We believe we have identified a leverage point in the system and we intend to lean on it. 

Over time we will build a library of past impact reports, there is some great content in our first impact report that is worth checking out!
