Abundance allows anybody to take part in building a better world. From as little as £5 people can earn a decent return from direct investments projects and businesses that generate clean energy, build affordable housing, or accelerate the transition to a low carbon economy. UK and EEA based investors can choose their own investments to build a diverse portfolio that has a positive impact on their financial future and the future of our planet. No matter how big or how small, they are all treated the same. This is part of the Abundance commitment to democratic finance, which seeks to encourage greater investment participation and confidence amongst under-represented groups of people. The overall mission is to create a world of win win investing. Abundance aims to deliver on this mission across all areas by investing in its people, in its brand, and in good practice.
