Ethical leadership

For over 30 years, we've been leading the way in ethical investments. Our rigorous ethical screening and fundamental investment analysis create a very different approach to mainstream equity portfolios. 

This is how we deliver both competitive returns and positive change for society and the environment. 

  • Ethical approach: our investment philosophy is centred around the 23 principles of our Ethical Charter that seeks out positive investments and avoids harm.
  • Aligning with client’s values: suitable for clients who are looking for an active ethical investment approach, that applies both a negative and positive screen.
  • Award-winning active management: this model leverages our flagship Australian Shares Fund with 20+ years of consistent outperformance*.

Our ethical investment approach

We go far beyond environmental, social, governance (ESG) criteria while focusing on long-term growth from Australian companies that meet our Ethical Charter.

We won’t consider a company for its investment potential unless it passes through our rigorous ethical assessment process. Once it does pass that hurdle, our team has more than 100 years of combined experience managing investments on behalf of our clients.

Aligning to your client’s values 

Suitable for clients who are looking for an ethically active investment approach, with a focus on excluding companies that cause unnecessary harm to people, animals, society and the environment while seeking out positive future-building investments like healthcare and enabling technology.
