U Ethical is Australia’s most experienced ethical investor, with its first funds established in 1985. Its north star of investing with purpose, and improving our world through the power of ethical investing, is a huge attraction for me – enabling me to also “give back” and improve our world for the future. The benefits of ethical investing, and ESG in general, are becoming more and more apparent to individual investors and organisations, and U Ethical is well positioned to help with these responsible investment goals.
