OUR STORY

Helping Australians build wealth with purpose

Elevate Super was established to fulfil a vision of building a better world for all through the power of investing and technology. Our mission is to democratise investing with measurable impact.

Elevate Super is a purpose-built SDG-enabled super fund powered by the brains behind AtlasTrend – a multiple finalist in fintech investment innovation awards.

After many years in the industry both locally and abroad, Kent, Jade and Kevin were motivated to create smarter, more purpose-driven financial products. They see the ~$3 trillion superannuation industry as a vehicle for social change, and want to empower more Australians to realise their investing power.

AtlasTrend is also partly owned by charitable foundations focused primarily on improving the health and well-being of children around the world.
