Invest in what you believe in, and divest from what you don’t


PROBLEM

Demand for ESG assets has exploded to $16.6T. People want to align their wealth with their values, but they can’t when over half of it is trapped beneath layers of mutual funds in their 401k, which still invests in weapons manufacturers, fossil fuels and private prisons.

SOLUTION

Arnie replaced the traditional 401k, using custom indexing to allow employees to personalize their 401k to their own set of environmental and social criteria. Algorithm-driven and returns-optimized so you can incorporate any sets of values without sacrificing financial returns.
