The Responsible Investment Certification Program provides an easily recognisable symbol of reaching the required Standard for responsible investing products and services in Australian and New Zealand.
Investor expectations around responsible investing are growing. 9 in 10 Australians believe it’s important their financial adviser provides responsible or ethical options, and 6 in 10 New Zealanders say it’s important their financial adviser is knowledgeable about responsible investment options.
Certified Financial Advisers and Financial Advisory Groups meet strict operational and disclosure requirements and make publicly available specific details of their services. They invite their clients and peers to hold them to account for their behaviours consistent with the Responsible Investment Certification Program Code of Conduct.
