In 2016, Megan and Abe came to realize they shared a passion. They had both experienced first-hand how difficult it could be to understand and ensure their money was being invested in companies that aligned to their respective values. They were motivated to make investing more transparent and accessible, making it easier for people to understand what their money was supporting.

This passion turned into COIN, a portmanteau of "Conscious Investor," which they founded alongside a team of engineers and investment professionals at a Hackathon held by John Hancock. A first place win led to the launch of a tool that analyzed how your investments aligned with your personal values. Today, COIN has evolved into a platform that helps you invest in a mix of companies making a difference in the areas you care about. COIN is growing with the backing of John Hancock, who continues to support our vision of responsible investing.
