^ For comparison purposes, we’ve selected the Future Super Balanced Impact option over the Balanced Index option because its ethical investment process (active positive and negative screening) is comparable to how Australian Ethical invests. Please note that every fund has a different investment approach, strategies and risk level. We encourage you to do your own comparison and review the relevant Product Disclosure Statement.

Ethics in practice

Our ethical charter has been in place since 1986 guiding the way we make investments.

But sometimes it’s hard to comprehend how it works in our everyday decision making process. So we’ve pulled together examples of the companies we invest in and those that don’t pass our ethical charter to help you better understand how we invest.
