OpenInvest is the world’s first automated investment advisor that builds your portfolio based on the causes you care about most. The company was founded in 2015 by Conor Murray and Phil Wei who met building financial systems for the world’s largest hedge fund, Bridgewater Associates. They started OpenInvest to merge their personal interests in global causes like climate change and deforestation with their professional interests in algorithms, tech and finance.
Shortly after starting up, they teamed up with Josh Levin, a sustainable finance leader from the world’s largest environmental organization, the World Wildlife Fund. With backing from Y Combinator, several Silicon Valley leaders, and impact investing experts they set out to truly reinvent investing and activism.
