Memorandum of Understanding: AE and Christian Super
If we proceed, it would mean little change to AE. It’s not a pivot in AE philosophy towards religion of any kind, it’s a transition of members from one fund to another.
To reiterate, the following would not change, not today, not tomorrow, not ever:
- The ethical way we invest your money
- our Ethical Charter
- our engagement with companies
- our advocacy for a better world
- our positions on
- marriage equality
- LGBTIQ rights
- climate change
These are core to who we are, and who we have always been since we began investing ethically in 1986. In other words, the reasons why you chose to invest your money with us - remain unchanged. They’re displayed here, loud and proud.
This comes at a time when it’s never been more important for people to invest for a better world. To use their money to address the challenges the world faces.
This week’s IPCC report spells out how our window for climate action is closing. And fast.
As a member, you will understand the power of money in driving change we need. The opportunity to welcome an extra 30,000 Australians to Australian Ethical would significantly amplify our positive impact at a time when it’s never been so urgent.
The fact is people are motivated to invest ethically for all kinds of reasons. Our role at Australian Ethical is not to question those reasons, but to help them invest their money in a way that ensures a better future for them, and the world around us.
