Australian Ethical is an investment manager and superannuation fund with a difference.
We believe that the power of money can be harnessed to deliver both positive returns and positive change for society and the environment. By investing responsibly in well-managed, ethical companies, this is exactly what we achieve.
The world is changing. Increasingly, people are choosing ethical products in supermarkets, some companies, both large and small, are acting more responsibly, and investors are seeking to use their money to maximise financial returns without comprising their values.
Responsible investment is already a $1.2 Trillion industry globally, and our research indicates that 2.2 Million Australians want to invest more responsibly.
You already know that providing clients with value is essential to your business. Post FOFA, there has never been a better time to enhance your client value proposition.
Every adviser offers value by matching clients with appropriate investments based on their risk profile, but stopping there misses an opportunity to provide deeper value and kindle a stronger connection with your client: By matching your client with investments that align with their values.
Don't believe the myth
The number one reason that investors shy away from ethical investment, is the myth that you need to sacrifice returns. Our performance, as well as the performance of ethical investments as a whole, demonstrates that this is clearly untrue.
Introducing ethical investment into your offering doesn’t require a restructure of your business. In fact, we make it very simple by providing all the tools and assistance you need to get started.
