Because there’s a better,
less extractive way.
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.
So we work to create agile and actively-managed portfolios that get competitive returns, and contribute to a sustainable future.
We partner with like-minded fund managers who take a leading approach to environmental, social and governance (‘ESG’) investing.
Their responsible screening techniques allow you to access high-performing investment options that are backed by research and overseen by the industry’s best minds.
Whether you call it ethical, sustainable or responsible investing, we don’t mind. What we care about is the on-the-ground impact of your portfolio.
For us, responsible investing is all about factoring in ‘externalities’ and carefully considering the things traditional balance sheets don’t capture well – specifically, people and the planet.
Weighing up environment, social and governance practices, in conjunction with financial performance, gives you a much better picture of a company or investment’s true value. It can also serve as a great early warning system and help you avoid undue risk.

Our Model ranks funds and identifies areas in which we can:
In a world of marketing that’s too clever by half, it’s hard to know who’s walking their talk when it comes to responsible investing.
