          ABOUT US

          Mission

          We’re pioneering a new and better way to invest in the future; one that empowers investors to participate in the growth stories of tomorrow.

          Rize ETF is Europe’s first specialist thematic ETF issuer. We are committed to challenging orthodoxy and providing investors with seamless access to the most ground-breaking megatrends shaping our planet.

          WHAT MAKES OUR ETFS UNIQUE?

          Expertly designed

          Each of our ETFs house an investment strategy that is purpose-built, in collaboration with a dedicated thematic research house, in addition to an index provider.

          THEMATIC

          We seek to balance long-term returns with exposure to companies that are backed by tailwinds we believe are making a positive impact on the world.

          PROGRESSIVE

          We cut through the sea of mundane content that characterises financial services, and deliver insights into the growth stories that matter to investors.

          DEMOCRATIC

          We believe in democratised access, and strive to make the latest, most exciting megatrends accessible to investors of all stripes.

          STRAIGHTFORWARD

          Our ETFs provide exposure to an entire theme in a single security that’s accessible on all major European stock exchanges.
