Fund Profile

Category: Open Ended Investment Company

Objective: The Fund aims to grow your investment. Policy: The Fund invests in shares of companies around the world. The Fund may invest in both developed and emerging market countries (countries that typically have lower average income and standards of governance than developed markets). The Fund invests in companies which are positioned to benefit from, and contribute to, the sustainable development of the countries in which they operate. Investment decisions around sustainability are based on three key points: Identifying companies who manage sustainability risks and opportunities and those with a positive sustainability impact. Inclusion of environmental, social and corporate governance matters in investment research. Engaging directly with companies on identified sustainability issues. The Fund may use derivatives to reduce risk or to manage the Fund more efficiently. The Fund is actively managed meaning that the manager uses expertise to pick investments rather than tracking a benchmark. The Fund’s performance is compared against the value of the MSCI AC World Index and the Fund is included in the Investment Association’s Global Sector. Investment of the Fund’s assets is not constrained by the benchmark composition or sector requirements and the Manager has discretion within the Fund’s investment policy to invest in assets without regard to the benchmark. You can buy and sell shares in the Fund on any business day. As long as we receive your instruction before 12 noon (UK time), shares will be bought at that day's price. The Fund's manager may use its discretion when deciding which investments should be held by the Fund. You will not receive any income from your investment. Any income will be rolled up into the value of shares in the Fund. In addition to the charges set out in the charges section, the Fund will incur portfolio transaction costs which are paid from the assets of the Fund. Recommendation: this Fund may not be appropriate for investors who plan to withdraw their money within five years.
