tickr gives you the power to invest your money into the causes you care about. We’re making investing in companies solving the world’s biggest problems accessible to everyone.
Why is tickr right for you?
By downloading tickr you can be a part of the future. We’re building a platform that gives everyone, regardless of their financial background or investment knowledge the power to put their money into the global companies addressing key themes. Climate change, equality and disruptive technology.
We’ve purposely built our platform to make investing as easy as possible for everyone. Our themes are specifically invested in global stocks and shares, bonds and cash across the market. Ensuring that your money is going into the global established companies making an impact in the world.
By investing across nations, sectors, industries and markets - you diversify the risk across investments. Impact Investing had historically been for industry experts and institutions - tickr changes this by giving you the choice to put your money into themes which you care about.
** What themes can you invest in? **
Climate Change: By investing in our climate change theme, your money will be going towards the companies solving this global issue. Low carbon, global water and clean energy are key sectors that are driving innovation towards a sustainable planet. Find out more about each sub-theme and company in the tickr app!
Equality: We see the world as one that should be fair, no matter what gender, ethnic background or age a person is. By investing in our equality portfolio - you’re putting your money into companies which are fighting for equal opportunity and to make sure we look after the most vulnerable in our ageing population.
Disruptive Technology: this isn’t the future, it’s happening now. Companies are accelerating social and environmental change at unprecedented rates. By selecting this theme you can put your money into robotics & A.I., cybersecurity and digitalisation. Just look back on the past 20 years of global technology advancements… imagine what we can achieve in another 20.
Combination: We know it’s hard to pick - that’s why we created the combo fund! If you care about all these themes then you can rest assured knowing you’re making your impact.

Ratings and Reviews
Camera function does not open to verify identity
iPhone 7, upon signing in and following the on boarding journey, the camera will not open within app to take picture of driving license/passport.
I have checked my camera and it works with the other apps.
I am stuck in tickr at the verify page and cannot proceed or move forward. I have set up a direct debit and all but now will have to wait until it’s set up and cancel, then delete app as I cannot use it until it gets fixed. Has anyone else experienced the same?
It could have been my error, but I do not recall receiving an allow camera notification. Tickr have provided support and have changed rating to 5
Developer Response ,
Hi Rachael, I'm sorry that the camera function is not working for you at the moment. We'd really appreciate it if you could reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the iOS software version you are using so we can take a look. There's a small chance the permission was denied to access the camera; you can check this by going to your iPhone Settings --> Privacy --> Camera. If it's off for tickr, you'll need to turn it back on and you should be able to proceed. Thanks, Lauren
Simple way to get started
App is very easy to use and understand. It’s particularly useful if you’re new to investing and just want to get started. I like the additional content you can find on site that explains how the app works and what’s happening with your money.
Highly Recommend Tickr
This app is extremely easy to use, with very simple steps to get set up and everything is explained along the way. Perfect for new investors who want to make a positive impact with their money. I now invest in the ‘Combo’ portfolio which gives me exposure to a range of impact funds. Thanks Tickr!
