    About Australian Ethical Investment Ltd

    Founded in 1986, Australian Ethical Investments offers a range of managed funds, an exchange-traded fund, as well as superannuation and pension products.

    The company's funds have nil investment in fossil fuel, nuclear, or tobacco companies. They also have a substantially heavier weighting in low carbon-producing companies and renewable energy investments than benchmark Australian and global index funds.
