Hub24 adds Australian Ethical fund

Hub24 adds Australian Ethical fund

Australian Ethical’s Emerging Companies Fund has been added onto the Hub24 Super and Hub24 Invest platforms.


The new addition means advisers on Hub24 Invest will be able to access the full suite of Australian Ethical funds, with advisers on Hub24 Super able to access three.

Australian Ethical’s head of business development and client relations, Adam Kirk, said the addition came as Australian interest in ethical investing reached "unprecedented levels".

"This demand is being driven by the end-customer, as more Australians realise they can both invest ethically and achieve strong returns," he said.

This sentiment was echoed by Hub24 managing director Andrew Alcock, who said he was "pleased" to include the fund.

"Ethical investment options continue to gather pace and we are proud to add this quality product to our broad investment menu," he said.

The Emerging Companies Fund invests in small cap companies that are actively selected "on the basis of their social, environmental and financial credentials".

Rather than selected on income, stocks in the fund are chosen for growth.
