Making your money count for more

Our mission

Our mission is to build a new financial system in the UK. One that works for everyone and delivers a positive impact on people, and the planet.

Purpose and mission is critical to us. In November 2020 we changed our company articles. From then, whenever we make a decision, we have a legal obligation to not only take into account the interests of our shareholders, but also all stakeholders: including the environment and society.

Why are we here?

We want the financial system to work for everyone. We want it to contribute solutions to the world's biggest challenges: a climate crisis and social inequality.


We want simple, honest, and transparent information about investing and money. We won't overcomplicate it with jargon.


We want to provide you with the access, support, and choice to make positive change through your financial decisions.


Joining The Big Exchange means you're part of the solution. Using your money to change the way that finance is used.

What are we doing?

We are building an ecosystem of financial products that help you make your money count for more.

Starting with investing and money management, The Big Exchange will continue to grow and help people to drive real change to people and the planet. Whether it is lowering carbon emissions, managing your budgets, or aligning your money to your values, using The Big Exchange can help.

Who we are?

We are a small team of hardworking people based all over the UK.  Find out more about the wider team and what we do.
