This course is created and written by Owen Raszkiewicz from Rask Australia, with crisp edits from former Rask Analyst, Max Wagner. Videos and accompanying material are produced by the Rask Australia design and editing team, led by the magician Sophie Ymer. 

What you will learn:

By completing Rask’s Ethical Investing course, you will be able to:

  • Determine what ethical investing is (and isn’t) — so you’re not supporting something you wouldn’t want to be
  • Use your money to support good companies and initiatives — whether you have $500 or $5 million
  • Know the difference between ethical investing (more positive) and socially responsible (less bad) investing, as well as impact investing
  • Invest in shares of companies with high ESG standards can lead to better performance
  • Start an investment strategy you can follow rain, hail or climate change

You will discover:

  • How to invest ethically in shares, ETFs or managed funds
  • Tens of trillions of dollars is already invested in ESG investments
  • What it means to invest ethically and support things that align with your personal values, and
  • How to analyse ETFs, fund managers and companies from an ESG perspective

Level & prerequisites:

This is a beginner course but we will assume some investing basics. Please feel free to take one of our free share market investing courses, available on the All Courses page. 

Ask yourself if you know the basics of…

  • What the share market is (a place to sell shares/slices of businesses)
  • What Super is and does (an investment account you can’t cash-in until 65+)
  • How to buy shares in Australia (via your online brokerage account) 

… if you know that stuff, you’re all set for this course — you’ll love learning how to invest ethically.

Course outcomes:

At the end of this course, you will know what to look for before you start trying to invest ethically, how to keep tabs on your investments (to make sure they’re doing the right thing) and how to save money by avoiding marketing gimmicks and tricks for ETFs and managed funds. 


I learned so much doing this course. Everyone wants to live sustainably, but we don’t know what steps we need to take. This was an eye-opener for me, in that I can work within the system for maximum impact. Great course! ~ exodia

Expert instructors

This course is totally free.

It costs you zilch. Nudda. Zero!

We also do NOT accept any commissions, kickbacks or fees from ANY of our course instructors, affiliates or partners.

This is just one reason why Rask is different from just about every bank, financial education service, business podcast network, investment research or financial advice business.

We stand for YOU.

So why do we do things for free? What’s in it for us?

Our mission is to help you live life on your own T&Cs.

Our team didn’t win the birth lottery. We didn’t grow up in fancy houses with lots of money. Nor did we have parents that knew everything about high finance. We had to learn the hard way… and it wasn’t easy.

We dream of a world when everyone has equal access to honest, trustworthy information and courses from anyway, at any time.

So how do we make money?

Just so you know, we make money by charging a small subscription fee to our loyal members who choose to join us for expert investment advice.

Is this course worth my time?
