What is ethical super?

Finding a superannuation product that is completely authentic and transparent can be harder than you think. When you have so many options to choose from, it can be hard to make the right choice about where to invest your financial future.

Looking beyond the label

When you invest with us, you’re putting yourself in the driver’s seat and making a conscious decision of where your retirement money goes – that is, keeping your mind engaged and making sure you understand what you are choosing to support, or not support.

Do the right thing, even when no-one is looking

Why would you invest with us and why does it matter? Our ethical charter drives our investment choices and underpins every aspect of our business. We do what’s right, even when no-one’s looking. We avoid investments in corporations that operate in harmful industries such as coal, oil, weapons, tobacco, gambling or are involved in human rights abuses. 

Unknowingly, many funds expose their members’ investments to coal mining, gambling, and materials which rely on non-renewable resources. Here’s our stance on issues we get asked about.

We also believe in the transformative power of money to achieve positive social and environmental outcomes. Not only do we avoid harmful sectors, we also look for investments in emerging growth sectors like renewable energy, technology, efficient transport, recycling, education and health.

Our in-house ethics and investment teams provide our members with an ethical portfolio that aims to generate competitive returns over the long term.

We offer seven investment options in our super fund for the conscious consumer. This means every buying decision you make has the power to change the world a little. It’s how you start wielding your power for good.

You can be safe in the knowledge that all the underlying companies and investments in our portfolio have passed our comprehensive ethical screening process.
