Monday, May 22, 2017

Investors want to make money, sure, but they also want their investments to have a positive impact on the world.

That’s the philosophy behind Swell, a new investing platform incubated by financial services firm Pacific Life, that launches today.

With offices in Santa Monica, California, the startup aims to provide consumers the opportunity to invest in six portfolios focused on a positive future: green technology, renewable energy, zero waste, clean water, healthy living, and disease eradication.
