What is a managed fund?


Easy to manage

Rather than handling all the administration involved in holding many shares, with our ethical managed funds, you can make one transaction into a fund that includes many investments selected by our award-winning investment team.


Easy to diversify

Diversification means ‘not putting all your eggs in one basket’. With a managed fund you can invest across asset classes (eg shares, property), as well as within asset classes (eg purchasing many different companies’ shares).


Easy to get started

You can start your Australian Ethical managed fund investment with as little as $1,000, or $500 with a regular investor plan.

Calculating Returns – Managed Funds

Total returns are calculated:

  • Using the sell (exit) price
  • Net of administration and investment management fees
  • Gross of tax
  • As if distributions of income have been reinvested at the actual distribution reinvestment price

The actual returns received by an investor will depend on the timing, buy and exit prices of individual transactions.
