Mindful Funds

There is a spectrum of ethical investment and many fund providers use some form of ethical management of their investment funds. We use the term Mindful Funds to designate funds that meet our high standard for investment, supported by credible verification. Read more in our methodology.

  • Buying local produce, shopping without plastic, and purchasing ethically made clothing are excellent decisions, but investing your money in ethical funds can have a much bigger impact on people and the planet. Mindful Money enables exactly that.

  • Each person has their own priorities and that’s where I think the Mindful Money website’s pretty cool

  • Mindful Money was the perfect tool for me to be able to make the switch to an ethical KiwiSaver fund with confidence. I fully recommend visiting the site. I am so happy that my investment now aligns with my values.

  • The day after you launched the site I had a look and realised there was a gold mining company I had unknowingly invested in which my friends in Aussie had campaigned against. The company had destroyed some of the most ancient Aboriginal culture sites and wrecked part of a Ramsar listed wetland. This is the only platform I know of where you can find out what is otherwise really difficult info to access. Thanks again!

    Dean Baigent-Mercer

  • I thought I was already invested in an ethical KiwiSaver. However, Mindful Money showed me that there is a difference between what I call "responsible" investing and what the big banks do. Plus it made taking action on this information really easy.
