UnifyImpact Launches New Fintech Platform
New Web Application Gives Independent Investors Access to Sustainability Data, News and Company Information to Help Align Personal Values with Long-Term Financial Planning
As sustainable investing grows in popularity, research and market trends have shown portfolios that consider ESG data can outperform ones that do not. The correlation between ESG and financial performance is growing stronger, suggesting companies with strong ESG performance more effectively plan for the future, navigate crises and manage a healthy, productive workforce. For investors, focus on sustainability can reduce risk, which can lead to long-term financial gain and peace of mind.
"Sustainable investing is more than a strategy, it is a movement," explained Mary Ann Hawley, Founder and CEO of UnifyImpact. "With our new app, we are taking tools created for institutional investors and repurposing them to empower individuals—
UnifyImpact works with leading data providers Xignite and Sensefolio to create proprietary metrics for sustainability performance and compare them to financial performance. The ESG data is created using an AI-powered algorithm, which scans company disclosures, media response, social media controversy and NGO research to add layers of accountability to corporate reporting. Whether members are interested in investing or simply making mindful purchase decisions, the UnifyImpact app helps them get transparent information about the companies they are interacting with.
"My dream is to give UnifyImpact members the tools to make demands of companies they invest in, collaborate with others who share their values, and use their collective voice to drive change. At launch we are starting with transparent data to help members make informed decisions. We give our members the tools they need to take charge," added Hawley.
