Before we get started
For financial professionals only
The content of this page is only suitable regulated financial advisers. Any news and/or views written just intended as general information and shouldn't be viewed as a personal recommendation.
A note on investment risk
Past performance isn't an indicator of future returns and investors could get back less than they put in. There's also no guarantee that investment solution or funds will meet their objectives.
Good governance, responsible behaviour
This profile invests in good corporate citizens, with funds’ companies selected on the strength of their corporate governance, and leadership in environmental responsibility and social issues. And because it’s positively focused, the funds aim to encourage positive company behaviour through responsible voting practices and engagement with senior management.
Positive investment approach
Funds in this profile aim to encourage positive company behaviour through engagement practices - typically investing across most sectors in the economy. There are no mandated negative screens, although some may be applied at the managers’ discretion. The flipside is there’s potential for limited exposure to controversial areas - if these companies are assessed to be ESG leaders.
Available in 10 Risk Grades
A choice of 10 Risk Grades allows you to find a portfolio mandate that lines up with your clients’ attitudes to risk.
Independent input, oversight and review from a panel of ethical experts validates ethical fund selection and provides guidance on solution construction.
