Socially Responsible Investing

If you’re someone who cares about the impact your investments make on the world, up until now, you’ve still had to do all the worrying yourself. We’re changing that — we made sure our SRI offering has the same great features all Wealthsimple portfolios do. Now you can feel good about your investments morally as well as financially.

Wealthsimple’s fees are the same as they are for non-SRI portfolios, but the fees charged by the firms that manage the ETFs are modestly higher than the fees for regular ETFs. There is, however, a good reason for the fee difference: Someone smart needs to screen for the most socially responsible companies by going through reams of data and designing cutting-edge analysis tools.
