WHEB Asset Management is thrilled to support The Big Exchange as a founding member. 

The Big Exchange is a blockchain-based mobile-first platform that offers a new approach to banking, saving and investing.

The revolutionary platform is aiming to make finance more inclusive by allowing anyone with savings or pensions to invest in funds that give an investment return and make a positive environmental and social impact.

WHEB is pleased to be supporting such an innovative initiative and join other founding members such as Aberdeen Standard Investments, Columbia Threadneedle Investments and Alliance Bernstein, in supporting the project.

George Latham, Managing Partner of WHEB Asset Management said: “The Big Exchange is an ambitious project to democratise positive impact investments. It has the potential to reconnect and mobilise disengaged savers with the outcomes their money is working towards in society. WHEB is really pleased to be involved.”

Launched by The Big Issue and The Big Issue Invest, the app will allow users to track how their savings support the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. They will also build a digital ‘social passport’ which will track, encourage and reward their positive impact.
