International Women's Day (8 March) is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. With this in mind we wanted to highlight one of the major issues facing women in Australia - that is the disparity in superannuation savings between men and women.
- Our Australian Ethical funds have continued to perform phenomenally as our February results demonstrate. “We have provided consistently high returns for our clients from a sustainably-focused investment process,” said Australian Ethical CIO, David Macri.
- Following a thorough assessment and review process, Australian Ethical has sold out of its investment in Petratherm after a shift in the business’s focus from renewable energy, to shale oil and gas.
- A lot has been written and said about the supposed harmful health impacts of wind turbines and the Australian Government, in their apparent move to slow the growth of renewable energy, have already committed to another review – many labeling it a witch-hunt.
- A new economic model has arrived and its revolutionising society. Named by TIME as one of the “10 Ideas That Will Change the World”, collaborative consumption describes the shift in consumer values from ownership to access.
