Fund Objective
To provide long-term growth focusing on Australian companies that meet the Australian Ethical Charter.
Fund Strategy
The fund seeks to invest in a diversified share portfolio of companies predominately listed on the ASX and selected on the basis of their social, environmental and financial credentials. The fund utilizes an active stock-picking management style with stocks selected for growth rather than income, with a bias towards smaller capitalization stocks listed on the ASX. All stocks are chosen on the basis of relative value where we deem the risks are being adequately priced.
