Fund Profile

Category: Open Ended Investment Company

The Fund aims to maximise total returns (a combination of income and capital growth) over the long term (five years or more) through investment in sustainable securities, primarily consisting of European investment grade fixed income securities. Policy ■ The Fund is considered to be actively managed in reference to the benchmark(s) in the performance table by virtue of the fact that it uses the benchmark(s) for performance comparison purposes. The benchmark(s) are not used to define the portfolio composition of the Fund and the Fund may be wholly invested in securities which are not constituents of the benchmark. ■ The Fund invests at least 80% of its assets in bonds issued by companies which are denominated in Euro or non-Euro corporate bonds that are hedged back into Euros. ■ The focus is on investment grade corporate bonds (i.e. those which meet a specified level of creditworthiness). ■ The Fund invests in companies that provide or produce more sustainable products and services as well as having a more progressive approach to the management of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues. ■ Although the focus is on investment grade corporate bonds, the Fund may also invest in government bonds, high yield bonds, cash or assets that can be turned into cash quickly. ■ Where the Fund invests in non-Euro assets, the currency exposure of these investments will generally be hedged back to Euro. Up to 10% of the Fund's currency exposure may not be hedged, i.e. the Fund may be exposed to the risks of investing in another currency for up to 10% of its assets. ■ The Fund may invest both directly, and through the use of derivatives. The use of derivatives may generate market leverage (i.e. where the Fund takes market exposure in excess of the value of its assets). ■ The Fund has both Hedged and Unhedged share classes available. The Hedged share classes use forward foreign exchange contracts to protect returns in the base currency of the Fund. Recommendation ■ This Fund may not be appropriate for investors who plan to withdraw their money within 5 years. How to buy ■ You may buy or sell shares on a daily basis (but not weekends or Bank Holidays). Orders must be received by 11.59a.m. (Irish time) for execution at midnight valuation point. Further details can be found at Investment process ■ Macroeconomic analysis is used to determine the managers' top down view of the world and this helps shape all aspects of portfolio construction and appetite for risk. After this, the managers aim to focus on high-quality issuers and believe this can reduce bond specific risk. Their assessment of quality is a distinctive part of their process, in which they combine traditional credit analysis with a detailed sustainability assessment based on their proprietary model. ■ The fund managers assess individual bonds for whether they believe the bonds offer attractive long-term returns and for absolute and relative valuations.
