What is the BAUM movement?
BAUM is a movement to guide youth, in particular Generation Z members, towards sustainable investing, recognising that resilient businesses which innovate solutions to solve global issues are best positioned to thrive.
We are invested in reshaping the way in which youths think about sustainability. At BAUM, our mission is to educate and encourage Generation Z investors to become stewards of a radically changing world through the lens of finance.
