Correspondence: Ethical investing, the collectables crush, the ATO's backflip.

Ethical investing options, the collectables crush, ATO backflip, and why SMSFs outperform.

I refer to the Eureka Correspondence (June 18, 2014) where ‘JH’ encourages you to ‘take a little more seriously the concept of ethical investment’. I certainly agree and, I think, many other subscribers would too. Our share portfolio avoids, for example, investment in mining companies. Would Eureka put together an example portfolio - or two or three - focusing on ethical investment, perhaps with different parameters? I would have thought iShares, or similar, would offer an ‘ethical’ product but I can’t find one - can you recommend something, such as an exchange-traded fund?


Editor’s response: Thanks for your query. Eureka Report published an article on ethical investing last year, highlighting what options are available and the limitations in the area.
