Democracy Investments is a new asset manager focused on promoting democracy and influencing capital flows in financial markets. Our Index is the first to re-weight an international equity index towards democracies and away from authoritarians. This is achieved by leveraging our exclusive license of the Economist’s Democracy Index for financial products globally.
Our goal is to decrease the cost of capital for democracies which will lead to their increased economic growth, and the reverse for authoritarian states. Additionally, by making investment proportional to democracy scores and never dropping investment in a nation to zero, we hope to create a market-based incentive for democratic reforms. Over time, Democracy Investments aims to influence capital flows in a way that will encourage ALL countries to improve their democracy scores. Together, we can affirm Democracy at home by investing in it abroad.
The Democracy International Fund ETF (ticker symbol DMCY) provides an international portfolio re-weighted toward democracies and away from authoritarian states. DMCY seeks to track as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the net total return performance of the Democracy Investments International Index (ticker: DMCYTR).
