Our mission

CIRCA5000 makes it easy for everyone to invest for their future in companies building a better world.

Most of us don’t know where our savings are invested. We opt-in to our company’s pension scheme or open an ISA from a big high street bank — unaware of what these investments are funding. Oil. Gambling. Weaponry.

CIRCA5000 is here to change that. We understand that when people invest, it’s with their hard-earned savings. Everyone deserves easy access to the tools shaping their financial future and complete transparency about where their money is going.

Sustainability doesn’t have to be complicated — the terms ESG, greenwashing, and SRI can be bewildering. Our platform is 100% clear on what companies do and how they impact the world. You won’t accidentally invest in any manufacturers using sweatshops or animal-tested products here. Our meticulous approach to the funds on our platform makes CIRCA5000 the gold standard of investing sustainably.
