Ethical Investment Australian Equities Portfolio

You can invest in companies which are actively making a positive contribution to a sustainable future

What is the Ethical Investment Australian Equities Portfolio?

The Australian Equities portfolio is designed to suit investors who hold strong ethical values and would like to invest predominantly in small and medium sized Australian listed companies.

The fund aims to provide long-term growth opportunities and outperform the S&P/ASX All Ordinaries Index over the long term, while providing access to companies which meet strict environmental and socially responsible standards.

The portfolio specifically targets investments with positive environmental or social aspects, and aims to exclude investments which damage the environment or cause harm to society.

A key focus of the portfolio is to find companies which are involved in positive environmental activities or which provide benefits to society, such as healthcare, renewable energy, energy efficiency and technology, food, water, sustainable agriculture and education.
