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.
