Past performance is no guarantee of future results

Historical time period: 03/03/16 - 03/31/21

Betterment’s historical returns were taken directly from their website (you have to have an account). Vanguard’s portfolio is constructed to be a total market benchmark combining their total US stock market ETF (VTI) with their total US total bond market ETF (BND). Carbon Collective’s returns are simulated to best demonstrate what the returns would have been if you had launched a portfolio using our sector-based, low-carbon strategy approximately one, three, or five years ago. For further details, numbers and graphs please read Carbon Collectives Portfolios vs Betterment and Vanguard's index portfolios.

All results are net of fees, including a 0.25% annual fee for Carbon Collective. We assume a management fee on the Vanguard portfolios of 0.00%. All returns include reinvested dividends.

I've used robo-advisors like Betterment and Wealthfront for years but I always felt like I was putting money into a black box. Carbon Collective changes that dynamic - I know why and where my investments are making an impact while getting great returns.

The discovery of James, Zach, and the Carbon Collective team has allowed me total peace of mind knowing that my money is being invested in climate solutions by a thoughtful group of knowledgeable investors... This is exactly the kind of work we need now.
