Ethical investing is a way of life for me, having been mentored by my father, a principled investor. Ethical investing means I help make the world a better place while avoiding harm to people and the planet. It is investing in line with my values, giving full alignment between what I believe, what I say, what I do and how I use my money.

U Ethical is one of Australia’s ethical investing leaders, blazing the way in ethical investing well before many of the current ethical providers realised they could make money for their own shareholders from ethical investing. In contrast with many others, U Ethical grants most of its surplus for community benefit, and is motivated by the highest ethical standards simply because we believe it is right.
