How your money is protected

Transparency is one of our core values at Cooler Future. To practice what we preach, let's dive a bit deeper into our business model and how we provide a professional and secure way to invest while supporting climate impact.

Your money is protected
Our partners

Your portfolio. Your business.

Your account will be managed by Baader Bank, our trusted banking partner which is supervised by the German Federal Financial Authority (BaFin).

If you invest with Cooler Future, your investments are always yours and yours alone. Legally, it is considered a separate asset and is therefore protected from the insolvency of Baader Bank or Cooler Future.

The best of the best

Our impact & investing team collaborates with asset managers like Pictet or Robeco that align with our values.

We check every decision they make to ensure that the funds on our platform are not only supporting the planet but are also set up for financial returns.

Fair and transparent pricing

In order to ensure that we can uphold our high standards of openness and climate impact reporting, we finance ourselves by charging a small management fee.

To keep it simple and fair, there are no output markups, depot fees or issue surcharges when investing with Cooler Future.

What are issue surcharges?

The issue surcharges are additional costs that are payed by the buyer once when investing in funds or other assets.

They are usually used as compensation for consultancy or sales services by the provider of the fund.

When investing 1000€ with an issue surcharge of 5%, you would only receive funds shares worth 950€ as 50€ would go directly to the provider.
