How the Fund works
The Ethical Leaders Global Shares Fund recognises that environmental, social and ethical considerations, labour standards and corporate governance factors can positively impact long term business success. Taking these factors into account when investing, the fund targets competitive investment performance with clear social and environmental outcomes.
The fund currently invests in the Ethical Leaders International Shares Fund, a fund managed by AMP Capital in Australia.
Our ethical fund invests your money in companies that are making a positive contribution in areas such as human rights, animal welfare, gender diversity,
environment, climate change and governance.
Our ethical fund actively avoids investing your money in industries that negatively impact our world such as fossil fuels, tobacco, nuclear power, armaments, gambling, alcohol and pornography
Investing within a sustainable and responsible framework
The fund employs a robust investment process that combines a sustainability focus with stringent financial analysis. The overall objective is to generate competitive returns for you within a sustainable and responsible framework.
Access to specialist investment managers
The fund is actively managed using a multi-manager approach that blends manager styles across a range of markets. This gives you access to investment with a responsible investment focus across a wide range of asset classes within Australia and overseas.
Currency risk is managed through hedging
Movements in the foreign exchange rate have an impact on offshore investments. To help manage this risk the fund is partially hedged to the New Zealand dollar
