Betashares FAIR ETF (ASX:FAIR)
The BetaShares FAIR ETF provides exposure to the largest Australian shares and focuses on companies which operate ethically. FAIR has been certified by the Responsible Investment Association Australasia (RIAA), as part of the Responsible Investment Certification Program.
What does the FAIR invest in?
The FAIR ETF’s methodology is to invest in companies that are classified as “sustainability leaders” due to their involvement in sustainable investment activities. To be a sustainability leader, the company must derive more than 20% of its revenue from specified industries like renewable energy, recycling or healthy foods and nutrition products. FAIR also applies a negative screening process to remove companies with exposure to things like fossil fuels, armaments and animal cruelty. This ETF also excludes the Big 4 Australian banks and large mining companies.
What do investors use FAIR for?
The BetaShares FAIR ETF could be used by investors to get exposure to a narrow (less than 100) basket of Australia’s largest public companies, that meet certain sustainability and ethical standards. These companies are likely to grow their profit over time and pay regular tax-effective dividends to their shareholders.
