WHO WE ARE

Util is a London-based fintech company on a mission to change the way the world invests.

We believe redirecting global capital towards sustainable companies is the most effective way to fix the biggest social and environmental challenges of our time. The problem is, there isn’t yet a way to holistically measure a company’s environmental and social impact.
