eToro, the multi-asset investment platform, today announces the launch of its latest CopyPortfolio, offering investors the opportunity to take a stake in the growing transition to clean, renewable energy.
Investors in the portfolio will get managed access to 22 of the world’s biggest and most innovative companies, operating in the renewable energy space. Spread across 11 countries, the portfolio includes Orsted, which is the world’s largest offshore wind developer, as well as large scale solar panel and wind turbine manufacturers like First Solar and Vestas.
Yoni Assia, CEO and Co-founder of eToro, comments: “Emissions targets, concerns about air pollution and the need to address climate change make clean energy a no-brainer. Even just a few years ago, investing in this area was far from common, but today it’s a mainstream investment in a massive, growing sector. If you want to invest in how businesses are making a difference to the planet, it’s worth considering this kind of opportunity.”
The renewable energy portfolio joins eToro’s expanding list of thematic CopyPortfolios, available to investors on the platform. They include portfolios providing exposure to, big tech, cryptoassets, gaming companies, banks, genome engineering and the cannabis industry.
Yoni Assia added: “CopyPortfolios are about making it as easy as possible for investors to access the assets they want. Whatever your passion or area of expertise, we want to provide an easy way of investing in it. We saw huge demand for our last big portfolio launch on the medical cannabis industry. Given the importance of renewable energy in the coming decades, we expect to see similar enthusiasm for this latest CopyPortfolio.”
The transition to clean energy has gathered pace in recent years and the value of the renewables sector is forecast to surpass $2 trillion by 2025 (1). The cost of renewable technology has continued to fall while venture capital and other forms of investment are growing in the sector. In 2018 alone, global clean energy investment totalled more than $332 billion.
