Alternative Investments/ESG: Raisin’s ETF Configurator Allows Investors ‘Do-It-Yourself’ ESG

Raisin’s pre-configured ESG portfolio provides exposure to around 600 individual securities.

The pan-European savings marketplace Raisin launched its Raisin Invest ETF platform in Germany in 2018. Raisin Invest has since become one of the market’s biggest robo advisers and now boasts of AUM of €950 million. On Wednesday, the fintech announced the launch of a new hybrid-robo “ETF Configurator” for the ETF platform, and simultaneously, a new ESG pre-set portfolio within the Configurator that offers more than 30 sustainable equity and bond ETFs to choose from.

Raisin’s ETF Configurator

  • For investors with a medium to long-term investment horizon who want to build their portfolio themselves
  • Allows investors to choose from around 200 ETFs and index funds from major asset managers such as Amundi, DEKA, iShares, Lyxor, UBS, Vanguard, and X-trackers
  • Investors can deploy individual investment strategies involving different asset classes, countries, regions, and sectors
  • Minimum of 500 euros or, within a Raisin Invest savings plan, from 50 euros per month
  • Automated portfolio management including the configuration of individual ETF portfolios, payouts, changes to the portfolio composition, regular rebalancing with different intervals to choose from, and an integrated savings plan
  • The configurator costs just 0.43% annually, plus fund costs.

A D-I-Y ESG portfolio

  • A pre-configured ESG starting portfolio developed by the firm’s investment experts
  • Exposure to around 600 individual securities
  • Broadly and globally diversified
  • Clearly defined sustainability profile including environmental impact, working conditions, tax transparency, and good governance

Economical portfolio management

“Many of the sustainable investment options are overpriced and thus underperform. Raisin enables a broadly diversified and, above all, cost-effective investment so investors don’t have to compromise on return opportunities. Since we take care of otherwise expensive and time-consuming processes such as trading and rebalancing through automation, the individual ETF portfolio can be significantly more economical than implementing it with a house bank or broker,” observed Kim Felix Fomm, Chief Investment Officer. “With the ETF Configurator, our customers can precisely implement personal preferences like sustainability while building wealth according to their own investment styles.”
