tickr

The investment industry is flawed. It was built for the wealthy and for large institutions. Placing profit above all else. Investing needs to change.

tickr has been built to be the future of investing. We're showing people that you can have a positive impact and achieve financial returns, at the same time. Investing isn't complicated, people have just been told it is.

Why We Run Events

We're building a community. We believe investing should be something people get involved with and take an active interest in how their money is used. This event is a chance for people to learn more, and to meet other people that feel the same way.

We're inviting everyone to our 'WTF is Impact Investing' event at our office on Kingsland Road in the heart of Shoreditch!

Come visit the office, meet the team and find out how to invest (there's pizza and beer too!).
