I love the idea of an impact PIE, I’ve been thinking of a product called KARMA that could mimic the most well known funds that include green energy, fair trade, animal welfare, etc.

It would be very cool to have investments options to automatically donate % of the investment to some charity or social cause through FVM Recipes.

What about psychedelics as a cause driven investment?
