We’ve long believed that good investment is responsible investment, and that great returns don’t have to come at the expense of our community or planet.

Ethos Managed Portfolios have been created specifically for those who want an agile and actively-managed portfolio that gets competitive returns, and contributes to a sustainable future.

We partner with like-minded fund managers who use a leading approach to environmental, social and governance (‘ESG’) investing. Their positive, negative and norms-based screening allows us to offer you high-performing investment options that won’t cost our collective future.

Both nimble and noble.

With Ethos, we’ve proven you don’t need to sacrifice returns to do the right thing.

Our responsible investment portfolios are nimble and noble high-performers, backed by research and overseen by the industry’s best minds.
