CIRCA5000 is on a mission to bring impact investing to everyone. They believe that everyone should have access to the financial tools that empower them to provide for their own future, in a way that contributes to our collective future. Co-founded in 2018 by Matt Latham and Tom McGillycuddy, who spent 8 years each in the investment management industry and became frustrated by the lack off access and purpose the industry provided. They both knew that if harnessed correctly, the industry could be a force for good and could accelerate positive change around the world. They built CIRCA5000 to plug this gap. Founded on the principles of accessibility, education and community, CIRCA5000 is re-designing the investment management industry, making it sustainable for customers and the world.
