Rest is unable to comment on ongoing legal matters.

Rest considers environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks in order to deliver competitive long-term investment returns for our members.

We believe that ESG issues include climate change and may represent risks that could influence the performance of our investments over the long term.

Before appointing an investment manager, we conduct extensive due diligence to assess their ability to invest sustainably and meet set investment objectives.

We require our investment managers to consider a range of factors, including ESG risks, when selecting investments in their portfolios and when exercising voting rights.

Information about Rest’s approach to sustainable investing is available on the website and in our Investment Guide.

We proactively engage with our members to encourage them to take an active interest in their superannuation.
