This data is compiled by Mindful Money from the fund information and portfolios that each fund has filed with the Disclose register to Fri Sept. 30th 2022 and Mindful Money analysis of funds within those portfolios. The list of companies of concern has been drawn from ratings agencies and public sources, including the Norwegian Sovereign Fund, NZ Super Fund, Sustainalytics and research organisations.

The listing of companies of concern is based on definitions used in Mindful Money's methodology. These definitions may be different from the exclusions policy and definitions applied by the fund provider.

Mindful Money uses the term Mindful Funds as our standard for ethical investment and responsible investment. This does not imply that other funds are unethical or that the fund providers that do not meet these standards are unethical providers.

Past annual returns for this fund are after fees and taxes. Please note that higher past returns do not always mean higher future returns.
