“The opportunity to climate-proof their portfolios”

Dani Brinker, Head of Investment Portfolios at eToro, commented: “2023 will be remembered as the year of climate change. From the effects of El Niño in Australia to the floods in Italy and the wildfires in Maui, almost no continent has been immune.”

Brinker went on to say: “With the global climate conference, COP28, around the corner, we wanted to offer retail investors the opportunity to climate-proof their portfolios and diversify into industries that will help rebuild our cities, communities, and surrounding wildlife after these extreme climate events.”
