GoParity - impact investment made easy

The lowdown on GoParity, the impact investment platform that connects companies looking to finance their sustainable projects, with individuals and entities who want to invest sustainably.

landing_enInvesting in things always seems like it would be a great idea if only you A) had the money to spare, and B) knew what you were doing. Invest money into someone’s dream and help it come to fruition, and then see a steady income returned to you - sounds ideal. The problem is the obvious uncertainty and danger of losing your money, which is why so many prospective investors turn to brokers and online platforms to help them find the right things to invest in.

This is where Portuguese impact investment fintech startup GoParity comes in. GoParity helps you to invest not in the next Uber or Airbnb, but in meaningful projects bringing positive changes to people and the planet, be it through sustainable energy, water and blue economy, sustainable land use, or numerous other areas in which a difference can be made. Some examples at the time of writing are decarbonising Kenya through solar energy for SMEs, clean energy for a small town in Portugal, and a biovilla with a market and organic garden in Portugal.

When you invest in a project, you choose the interest rate range and the length of time you want to continue investing (the average time to project maturity being 3.6 years), and everything can be made automatic if you want to simply let the platform take care of maintaining your investments for you. GoParity says that the average interest rate for investments is 5.25%, which totals €3,398,165 that they have returned to investors to date, in return for help avoiding 22,757 tonnes of carbon emissions every year.

Thanks to platforms like GoParity, perhaps those of us with no knowledge of investing can still try our hand at it without risking too much, making a little something back, and doing a lot of good in the process.

Incidentally, sustainability in business is high on the agenda at our upcoming BIG IDEAS event - featuring keynote and panel discussions. We'd love you to join us - wherever you may be! Book your free ticket now!
