Do good, better, together 

We are a peer-to-peer community of wealth owners, deeply aware of the impact our investments can have in the world. We believe in the power of money as a force for good. 

PYM - The conscious investors’ community

PYM is an independent foundation that connects and guides wealth owners to invest their capital consciously for a better world. We are a peer-to-peer community of families, philanthropists, individual investors, family offices, and foundations.

Your money matters
We believe in the power of money as a force for good. That is why we promote listed and non-listed impact investing. You can invest successfully in businesses, directly or through funds, that have a purpose beyond profit.
 
Companies are stepping up their efforts to do better business - socially and environmentally while remaining profitable. Entrepreneurs choose to be in business to help solve the biggest challenges our planet and humanity are facing. Traditional investors are pushed towards responsible investing. The EU will soon require institutional investors to disclose environmental and social risks in their investments.
 
Our mission
We seek to inspire wealth owners to invest and donate their money meaningfully and effectively. We want to be a leading light in your journey to be a conscious investor.
 
We focus on investors in the Benelux, but we welcome everyone who shares our goals.

Upcoming PYM events

Meet our team

PYM stems from the first impact investment community in Europe, the Put Your Money Where Your Meaning is Community (Pymwymic) founded in 1994. Pymwymic has developed into an impact fund. To grow the investor community and facilitate collaboration, we founded PYM as an independent foundation.

As investors, we have benefited from collaborating and exchanging ideas with several impact investing communities, banks and family offices. We wanted to open up our community to every wealth owner who is interested in investing their capital consciously.

What is the history of PYM?

PYM was incorporated in Amsterdam in August 2020, however, its origins are much older.

The PYM foundation and community of today got its start in 1994, alongside the investing activities of the pioneering group Pymwymic (Put Your Money Where Your Meaning is community), a group of impact investors who did a tremendous amount of field building and later on started an impact fund.

The founders of Pymwymic were at the vanguard of impact investing in the Benelux. When their fund grew, PYM split off as an independent foundation to focus on building the field and growing the number of impact investors in the Benelux.
