Investing deep dive: Meet Artesian
We’re not your average investing app! Our ethical investment managers curate investment portfolios that also have a truly positive impact.
The Artesian Green & Sustainable Bond Fund (the Fund) is Australia’s only corporate-focused green and sustainable bond fund that’s open to retail investors (that’s you!).
A Certified B Corporation, Artesian is a leader in both carbon efficiency and gender equity. 100 per cent of their fund holdings have women on the board, and 85 per cent have more than one woman on the board. You love to see it. Not only that, but the Fund has also:
- Saved over 101,732,416 litres of water
- Financed 7,070 square metres of energy efficient infrastructure
- Provided 39,721 people with access to water and sanitation
- Supported 302,292 trips made on clean and sustainable transportation
Their dedicated investment managers have strict impact monitoring practices and screening processes. With a zero-tolerance policy for direct investment in the production of tobacco, alcohol, pornography, weapons, palm oil, gaming equipment, and exploration or production of fossil fuels, this is what we mean by investing for good.
