Idea

Impact investment funds have grown 270%, topping £7.1bn, and at the same time, there are 13.2m people that will need to build their financial resilience after the pandemic.

The Big Exchange is a financial technology platform that aims to help people not only improve their own lives, but to help them create significant positive change with their money in 3 key ways:

1. A low cost investment platform, where every investment is assessed for positive impact; no other investment platform independently rates their funds this way

2. Inclusive, accessible money management tools so anyone can see their financial footprint to make their money count for more

3. A marketplace where people can find products that can have a positive impact on their lives and the lives of others (in progress)

Our customers are savers and spenders who we take a fee from for the platform and marketplace referrals. Growth has been driven by marketing and reviews including Which?, Good Housekeeping, Compare the Platform and the Guardian. The platform was awarded Best Sustainable ISA 2021 (Boring Money), Top Sustainable Platform for 2021 (Good with Money) and Best Innovation in Investment (Financial Services Forum Innovation Awards).

The more who join, the more positive impact we can make. That’s why we are seeking your support to help us scale up. Join us, and help build a fairer financial system, for you and everyone.

The Big Exchange has been given advance assurance by HMRC that the proposed share issue is likely to qualify for Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) tax relief.

Tax relief is available to individuals only, with income tax relief currently set at 30 per cent of the cost of the shares for the tax year in which the investment was made. The tax reliefs can also reduce your Capital Gains Tax bill. Read More.

Availability of tax relief depends on your individual and the company’s ongoing circumstances and applicable law.
