Launch of Ethex ethical investment trading platform

The Barrow Cadbury Trust is among the investors in Ethex, a new online not-for-profit stockbroker which offers individuals the opportunity to invest in social businesses.
The Trust also made a grant to support development of the trading platform, which gives investors the opportunity to buy and sell a stake in companies which offer mission-related as well as financial returns.
The site aims to make social investment accessible to ordinary citizens, who can make a positive choice to put their capital behind companies which advance social ends.
Other charitable foundations supporting the launch of Ethex include Big Lottery Fund and Esmée Fairbairn Foundation. You can find out more about Ethex here.
