A SUPERANNUATION & INVESTMENT FUND MANAGER WITH A DIFFERENCE

Australian Ethical has been helping Australians invest in a better future for over 30 years. We believe that the power of money can be harnessed to deliver both competitive returns and positive change for the planet, people and animals.

We seek out positive investments that support people, quality and sustainability, and we avoid investments that cause unnecessary harm to people, animals, society and the environment.

Ethical and sustainable investing isn’t just a part of what we do. Unlike most of our competitors, it’s everything we do. And while we’ve evolved in many ways since starting in 1986, we have always stayed true to this.
