Ethical and superb


This is a simple decision for your super, and you.
Safe in the knowledge that your fund is making the ethical choice you want

Glad I changed.


Good performance and good for the heart! I think this is a powerful way to put your money where your mouth is.

Very happy with the switch to Australian Ethical


I made the switch nearly 2 years ago trying to stand by my morals but not really sure what results I would get. My previous superannuation ticked over with little to no change over the years so I was very pleasantly surprised to see my investment with Australian Ethical super make some significant gains. The transition across was as easy as filling out a form and I get regular updates online. A very easy process. Very happy!

Long term strong performance


Been with Australian Ethical since the late nineties and going strong. Outperforming other funds I'm in. Recommend very highly to all.

Glad to be a part of it


Very happy with all the wonderful sustainable industries Australian ethical super is involved with. It's nice to see money going to a better future

Outstanding performance


Outstanding because Australian Ethical performed at 10.1% compared (from June 2014-2015) to the median default investment option, which was 8.8%.



Australian Ethical offers peace of mind and financial gain! They are doing very well financially and rest assured your money is doing good



It gives me peace of mind knowing my money is spring ethical projects, without me even needing to do anything about it.

I feel so much better to know as best as possible that my money is not supporting the demise of the


This is one key way to become more sustainable as a species. Otherwise your money is being used by corporations who have no regard for human happiness, sustainability, or survival.



Title says it all, ethical investment works and is aligned to the values of the investors, well done for upholding and progressing

two decades of growth


Been with Aust. Ethical for nearly 25 years, both as a unit trust holder and with super. It's a much lower risk than mucking about half-arsed in the market as a dweeb, and so moving my super over a decade ago was a no brainer. Better rate of return, (forget about do more better things ethical? is that like meth?... hehehehehe)(hipsters go home).

More than 20 years with them and glad I made the choice


I moved my super to Australian Ethical more than 20 years ago. The most important thing to me was knowing where my money was invested and that it wasn't supporting industries that are harming our planet. On top of this I have always found them to be great communicators and very transparent. My funds even weathered the GFC fairly well and bounced back quicker than I expected. Thanks!

Putting my money where my mouth is


Really important that my money is invested according to my values. Australian Ethical does that and delivers great returns too.

The right choice


Australian Ethical Super are a fantastic mob, always friendly on the phone, a great easy to use site and high returns, all while making you feel a little like a superhero for doing your bit to make the world a better place.

Love it!


So good to be part of a super that does something for the environment and gains me the rewards. Can't wait to see what investments happen this year.

Ethical business behaviour is very important to me


I have had Ethical Super for a good amount of years and it grows well every year. Unlike another which managed to reduce my super to nothing when i had to stop work. It s agreat company and everyone is really helpful and knowledgable. I will be investing in Managed Funds this year too - because I feel so confident in theri strategies.

We hope that helps get you started.



I have super with AE and I'm now considering putting money into one of the AE managed funds. So far I like the approach AE takes. The fees are pretty high though. How can you justify this?

Hi Jimbobaloobop,
It's always nice to hear that one of our Super members is considering one of our Managed Funds as well! We're glad you like our ethical approach to investing - and you would already be aware of our competitive performance returns.
Fees are about many things, including the level of engagement of the fund managers, and a matter of scale. Australian Ethical has a particularly high level of engagement, because of both our ethical screening, and our active investment style. Despite this, since 2013 we’ve more than halved our fees. It’s just one of the ways that as we grow, we’re making sure to share the benefits with our investors. You might also be interested to know that we are one of the best valued ethical investment funds in Australia when you take into account what our product offers. You may also find that other ‘ethical funds’ may not offer a comprehensive ethical screening process, for example only screening certain negative industries, or best of industry.
You may be interested in some of our wholesale funds, which offer the funds at a substantially reduced fee. You can find more information on our wholesale funds here: https://www.australianethical.com.au/managed-funds/fees/.
You can find more on the performance of our managed funds here: https://www.australianethical.com.au/managed-funds/performance-and-returns/
If you want to discuss our investment options, don't hesitate to call us on 1800 021 227.
