Our Australian Shares SMA offers clients the opportunity to invest in a portfolio of Australian companies that aligns with their own values – we restrict companies that cause unnecessary harm to people, animals, society and the environment and seek out positive, future-building companies across healthcare, technology, utilities and finance.
The Portfolio aims to exceed the return of the ASX200 Total Return Index after taking into account management expenses over a 7 year period.
We apply ethical screening and fundamental investment analysis to give clients a responsible alternative to mainstream equity portfolios – all within the flexible and transparent structure of an SMA.
