Why Ethical Growth Fund?

A highly diversified global portfolio that invests in companies meeting our Ethical Investment guidelines.  We exclude companies from many industries that have a damaging impact on society.


An ethical portfolio with a higher exposure to growth assets and a lower exposure to income assets. Investments are spread across multiple asset types, geographies, companies and sectors to provide diversification. The investment strategy includes management of foreign currency exposure to New Zealand dollars.

Past performance is no guarantee of future return. We encourage all investors to seek financial advice prior to making investment decisions.

Risk Level

This Fund is suited to an investor with a medium-high tolerance to risk and a minimum timeframe of 10+ years.

The risk indicator is rated from 1 (low) to 7 (high). The rating reflects how much the value of the Fund’s assets goes up and down (volatility). A higher risk generally means higher potential returns over time, but more ups and downs along the way. This risk indicator is not a guarantee of a fund’s future performance. As the fund does not have a five year history, the risk indicator was prepared using the relevant market index returns from July 2016 to August 2020 (when the fund was not in existence) and the fund's returns since then. As a result, the risk indicator may provide a less reliable indicator of the potential future volatility of the fund.
