The performance data is updated on a monthly basis.
Total returns are calculated:
- Using the exit price
- Net of administration and investment management fees, taxes and other costs
- The standard calculations are based on a member with an account balance of $50,000, which will not be relevant to all members
- The standard calculations do not allow, for example, for the effect of contributions to your account, insurance fees or various other matters
- Performance figures relating to unit prices between 1 July 2011 and 31 December 2016 have been restated following the remediation of a unit pricing error
Figures showing a period of less than one year have not been adjusted to show an annual total return. Figures for periods of greater than one year are on a per annum compound basis.
Return of capital and the performance of your investment in the fund are not guaranteed. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.
Definitions of "healthy" or "strong"
*When we use the term “healthy” we are referring to the fact that our ethical approach applies to every investment we make and where the product or option has delivered after fee returns in the top 2 quartiles amongst its peer group over the relevant investment period.
*When we use the term “strong” we are referring to the fact that our ethical approach applies to every investment we make and where the product or option has delivered after fee returns in the top quartile amongst its investment peer group over the relevant investment period.
When you invest in an Australian Ethical Super investment option, your money buys a number of units. The unit price is the dollar value of each unit in the investment option on the specified date. Unit prices are calculated by dividing the net value of the investment option’s assets by the number of units issued. On 12 December 2017, we moved from weekly to daily unit pricing which means unit prices go up and down each day based on movements in the market value. As the unit price changes, so does the value of your investment which means your super balance will be different each day.

You can change or switch your investment options at any time by logging into your account or giving us a call.
Generally, investment switch requests submitted online before 4.00pm (Sydney time) on a Business Day will be processed using that day’s unit price. If the online investment switch is submitted after 4pm (or on a day other than a Business Day) the following Business Day’s unit price will be used. An exception to this process is if a pending transaction (such as a contribution) has been received but is yet to be processed. In this case, the pending transaction will be processed first and the investment switch will be processed within 2 business days after it was submitted online and will receive the unit price for the day it was processed, not the day it was submitted.
It takes up to two business days to calculate the unit price. During these two days, we calculate the value of all the assets we invest in and the number of units on issue, which is affected by contributions and withdrawals.
We need these valuations to accurately calculate the unit price for any of our investment options.
To find out more about how unit prices are calculated and used, please see our legal disclaimer.
