June 22, 2023
It’s human nature to want to invest in things you care about. Plynk makes this easy by identifying popular investment categories and providing options with just a single click.
How do you find investments that fit your interests and values?
Investing is a more enjoyable and fulfilling experience when you can follow what you believe in. Maybe it’s a technology that excites you, or a company you’re inspired by. Either way, you want to invest in what matters to you. This idea is often called “thematic investing.”
Thematic investing with Plynk
- Go to the app’s Discover page and scroll to the “browse by category” section.
- View choices for investment themes you might like—ranging from state-of-the-art fields such as artificial intelligence or 3D printing, to a business’ leadership structure, including founder run and led by women.
- Select a category, which brings you to a page describing the theme and a list of potential stocks or funds to invest in.
Example: How to invest in women-led companies
Let’s break down how to use this information. Start by reading the description.
This category shows companies with top "women impact" scores, which are based on a company’s percentage of women on the board, women in management, and women employed overall.
There are also 3 ways to sort investment options: by size, past performance, or expert rating.
From there you can click on a company to view more details about it, then tap “buy now” or “add to cart” if you’d like to invest!
