Our Client Success


Built on the principle of creating a better future for us all

Since 1986, Australian Ethical (AE) has grown its customers’ finances while positively impacting people, animals, and the planet. The company does this by investing responsibly in ethical companies that are contributing to a more sustainable future. This approach also generates long-term value for its customers. The success of this ASX listed company (ASX: AEF) is built on the principle that money can be used to create a better future for us all.

“With our NetSuite ERP solution delivered by DWR, we’ve gained a tighter control environment with role-based access for separation of duties, automated process flows for accounts payables, fixed assets, prepayments, and approvals, and audit logs of everything from system access to general ledger entries, approvals, and postings.”

Partnering with DWR to deliver a robust NetSuite solution

AE has 80+ staff and manages over $6 billion for 70,000+ clients (managed fund investors and funded superannuation members). The company has experienced rapid growth.

AE recognised the critical role of business systems to amplify success and support growth goals. As a result, the company launched an internal project, “FIT 4 GROWTH”, to review its current systems capability and identify the technology framework needed to support faster growth. The company focused on cloud-based, mobile-native solutions that would also provide longevity in a fast-moving technology environment.

To understand how a NetSuite ERP system could support the company’s goals and drive tangible outcomes, AE invited DWR Consulting, an award-winning NetSuite ERP partner, to engage in an RFP (request for proposal) process. DWR demonstrated the robust financial and operational consolidation capabilities of NetSuite.
