As co-founder and CEO of Team Blockchain, Ltd., Jonny Fry is a frequent contributor to print and broadcast publications on Blockchain-related issues. In the 1980s he started, and later became CEO of an asset management company, which was floated on the London stock exchange. After over 20 years, and having grown the funds under management to over £1 billion, he wanted to do something different. He was attracted to the opportunities to help companies that Blockchain technology presented and, even more, believed that crypto-currencies had created a new asset class for investors that could help digitize many industries in important ways.

It’s difficult to get through the financial news these days without seeing or hearing the words Socially Responsible Investing (SRI), Impact Investing, Ethical Investing or any number of their offshoots. Whether it's wanting funds to support schools in Africa that educate girls, helping economically challenged kids afford to go to college, or making sure their money is contributing to environmental projects, it’s clear to Check6 that investors are more and more concerned not just with how much their investments are making them monetarily, but how that money is being made and how that reflects on their moral and ethical position in the world. This is being seen in the growth of such investments over the last year alone. As the most recent Global Impact Investors Network (GIIN) estimates show from its annual survey, there is now 228 billion USD in impact investing assets, which is nearly double that of last year.
