Performance and Returns

Why can ethical super perform better?

Avoid Dying Industries

Avoid dying industries

While other super funds may be investing heavily in industries with an uncertain future (like coal), we’re making ethical and competitive investments for the future.

Less Bad, More Good

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 ethical and competitive investments.

Good Investments In The Future

Good investments in the future

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