EarthFolio Launches World’s First Online Sustainable Investing Service

New green “robo-advisor” integrates best-of-class sustainable screening to build and manage client portfolios

SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA (October 12, 2015) - EarthFolio (www.earthfolio.net), the first automated investment service specializing on sustainability, launched today.  The revolutionary investment platform uses an online interface to help clients assess their investment goals, design their portfolio, and receive automated portfolio management.

EarthFolio is the only automated investment service, or "robo-advisor," to invest exclusively in sustainable or socially responsible funds.  The online investment service features a minimum investment of $25,000 and a management fee of .50% that waives all loads, commissions, and transaction charges.

"Until now, unless you were an institution, getting sustainable investment advice was almost impossible," says EarthFolio founder Art Tabuenca, "EarthFolio changes this by enabling regular investors to align their head and heart anytime they invest."

EarthFolio constructs each portfolio using mutual funds pre-selected on up to 10 environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) screens.  The screens seek best-of-class companies in areas such as clean energy, equal employment, human rights, and animal welfare, while also minimizing companies profiting from sweatshops, tobacco, weapons, and gambling (see: www.earthfolio.net/sustainability/esg-screens)

A growing body of evidence reveals that sustainable investing is growing rapidly and performs as competitively as other investments (see: www.earthfolio.net/top-3-questions).  EarthFolio provides a ten-year history of the S&P 500 versus the Calvert and Vanguard sustainable indexes and a free head-to-head analysis tool that allows investors to compare their own investments to their personal EarthFolio recommendation.

To learn more about sustainable investing or EarthFolio please visit www.earthfolio.net for extensive FAQs, sustainable index performance, ESG screening, and background information.  Earthfolio can be reached at 805-595-1821.
