A message from our CEO about COVID-19
Australian Ethical CEO John McMurdo discusses our response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
How do you really know if your money is invested in weapons, fossil fuels or slavery? The ethical investing scene can be a bit confusing to the uninitiated, so here’s a basic rundown of the different options that are available.

Australia needs a responsible and well-regulated banking sector to fund large-scale renewable infrastructure projects. That said, we don’t excuse the failings of any bank – and that includes Westpac’s latest AUSTRAC reporting breaches as well as scrutiny of NAB at the recent Royal Commission. On balance, we believe Westpac and NAB are having a positive impact on society and we currently remain invested in both companies.
