This is a new addition to the ISA scene and is worth a look for those who want a simple, ready-made collection of sustainable investments with minimum hassle. The website is not as flash as some and getting set up won’t be the slickest digital experience BUT the costs are fair, the investment process thorough and you will know that your money is aiming to do well and do good. Nice.

Overall Summary

Best Buys 2021

  • Best For Sustainable ISA

Ease of use

Setting up an account with The Big Exchange is not a particularly glossy journey, however it is easy and you are guided through each step. Costs are clear and the process is uncomplicated. The website is easy to use, however can be stifling, specifically in terms of fund research and analysis.

Behind the scenes

The logged in experience is smooth, albeit slightly limiting in terms of fund analysis. It clearly shows you your “social passport”, which is a record of your positive financial and social actions. This is a novel concept that aligns well with the company’s proposition. Performance is displayed clearly and is easy to analyse.
