1We don’t invest in companies whose main business is fossil fuels, or in diversified companies that earn some fossil fuel revenue and aren't creating positive impact with their other activities. We may invest in a diversified company which is having a positive impact in other ways such as producing renewable energy, providing its negative revenue is sufficiently low (a maximum of 5% to 33% depending on the activity). We have never invested in tobacco and support Tobacco Free Portfolios. For more information on how we assess, see Ethical Criteria.

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. Australian Ethical offers a diverse range of super investment options depending on your investment objective, timeframe and risk profile. You can see the options and their respective performance here.
