I have just discovered that you also have a forum for your community of investors and it would be great to have a way to help people like me be activists investors by providing a way for us to band together and influence companies through the might of our collective share ownership.
Mali is the country where I was born. So I know the resources will acquired and developed whether I invest or not. So I have invested with Kidal Minerals because I do think that their project is promising. However, if Trading212 could connect me to like minded investors and provide with the tools to take and enact collective decisions (e.g. request a level of Corporate Responsibility, guarantee a level of respect for the local environment and population etc.) That would be amazing.
I do think it would make the platform stand out from the competition and attract many more investors to the first platform who will implement this but all those that will follow suit. Although money matters, many people need more than that. A good example is the national lottery. Many people are happy to play and lose because they know that part of their money will have a positive impact on society. I don’t like gambling so I’m not making that kind of comparison with investing. It is a great demonstration of the point I’m trying to make though.
