Performance and Returns

Why can ethical investments perform better?


Avoid Dying Industries

While other investment managers may be investing heavily in industries with an uncertain future (like coal), we’re making positive, profitable investments for the future.


Less Bad, More Good

Having unethical investments excluded from our ‘investable universe’ doesn’t lead to lower performance potential; it just means there is more money available to make positive, profitable investments.


Good Investments In The Future

We invest in clean energy, medical solutions, innovative technology, sustainable products, healthcare, energy efficiency and more.

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.
