Perpetual Ethical SRI

The Perpetual Ethical SRI Fund aims to provide long-term capital growth and regular income by investing in shares of socially responsible companies.

The Fund seeks to meet the needs of investors who seek attractive long-term returns by investing in companies that match their own personal social, environmental and ethical preferences.

The Fund will not invest in companies that derive a material proportion of their revenue from the manufacture or sale of alcohol or tobacco; the operation of gambling facilities; coal seam gas or uranium extraction; or the manufacture of weapons or armaments. Companies are also subject to social responsible investment (SRI) screening to evaluate how their practices impact society and the environment including fossil fuels.

At the same time, the Fund offers investors all the benefits of Perpetual’s proven investment philosophy and approach. We only invest in a company when we believe its share price is attractive relative to its return potential. Perpetual seeks to hold positions for the long term, provided that the quality of the business remains unchanged and the price remains attractive.

Perpetual is a signatory to the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).

OUR ETHICAL SRI SCREENING PROCESS

The Perpetual Ethical SRI Fund is a specialist Australian Equity strategy that invests in a diversified selection of ethical and socially responsible companies.
