“I set this business up to revolutionise savings and to give power to people who care about making a difference, not just for themselves and their loved ones but for the community as well”.
This week’s guest on the financial planner life podcast is David Macdonald, founder of The Path an ethical and positive impact-focused financial planning firm.
I 💚 David’s story, a chance viewing of the powerful documentary Cowspiracy completely changed his career path, he sold his practice and decided to be 100% committed to positive impact financial planning, and when you look over some of the stats you can understand why.
In a single year, £100,000 invested in an ethical pension could achieve 68 vital medical interventions, 5 households supplied with renewable energy, 94 hours of education, 26 tonnes of CO2 emissions avoided, the equivalent to taking 6 cars off the road!
The recent Nordea study also mentions that a lifetime pension savings in positive impact funds have 27x more impact than all other carbon-saving activities in your life combined.
