How we build your SRI portfolio

We invest your money across the entire stock market using low-fee exchange traded funds (ETFs) that are carefully screened and weighted for environmental and social impact, as well as for performance.

    We built a more responsible ETF

    • Most SRI portfolios pick the “least bad” companies in problematic industries. We take those industries out of the equation.

    • We eliminate the top 25% carbon-emitters in each industry — so our funds have a lower carbon footprint without compromising diversification

    • Every company in our fund has 25%, or at least 3, women on their board of directors

    Wealthsimple charges the same management fees for SRI portfolios as non-SRI portfolios (0.5% on the your first $100,000 and 0.4% after that). However, the fees charged by the firms that manage the ETFs are modestly higher than the fees for regular ETFs - a weighted average of 0.24% to 0.28%, compared with around 0.1% for standard Wealthsimple portfolios. There's a good reason for a higher fee: someone smart needs to screen for the most socially responsible companies by combing through reams of data and designing cutting-edge analysis tools.
