why ethical investing
Most traditional funds invest in negative industries like tobacco, weapons, and fossil fuels without considering the environmental or social consequences
of their investments.
Ethical funds remove the negative and invest in positive companies, while carefully evaluating environmental and social impacts in generating returns.
Historically, ethical funds have performed as well as, or better than, traditional funds. Ethical screening has been shown reduce risk in funds over time*.

Real world outcomes
Ethical and impact investing can have positive real world effects
Unlike traditional funds, which are solely driven by profit motive at all costs, ethical and impact funds work to secure your financial future without compromising your ethical values.
Environmental, social, and governance metrics are used to include or exclude companies in the funds we recommend.
This allows you to plan for your future in the knowledge that your savings are working hard to deliver without compromise.
How it works
Ethical fund managers select your investments by
Removing negative companies
Focusing on positive companies
Working with the rest to improve
By screening out companies with negative environmental and social side-effects, fund managers can focus on creating a profitable portfolio, built with positive companies.
Fund managers will maximise your shareholder voting rights to encourage companies to make decisions which deliver returns and positive social outcomes.
