Investment objective and policy

The Fund aims to grow your investment. Pursuant to the EU Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (EU 2019/2088), this Fund also has sustainable investment as its objective under Article 9. The Fund invests at least 70% of its assets in shares of companies in Europe (including the UK). The Fund may invest up to 100% of its assets in developed and Emerging Markets, in any industry, or companies of any size. The Fund invests in shares of high-quality companies which are positioned to contribute to, and benefit from, sustainable development. Investment decisions use a thematic sustainability approach and an assessment aiming to identify high quality companies based on three key points: (i) Quality of management. (ii) Quality of the company including its social usefulness, their environmental impacts and efficiency and responsible business practices. (iii) Quality of the company's finances and their financial performance. Sustainability is a key part of the approach. The Fund may use derivatives to reduce risk or to manage the Fund more efficiently.

Risk Factors

The value of investments and any income from them may go down as well as up and is not guaranteed. Investors may get back significantly less than the original amount invested.

Material risks not adequately captured by the SRRI:

Currency risk: The Fund invests in assets which are denominated in other currencies; changes in exchange rates will affect the value of the Fund and could create losses. Currency control decisions made by governments could affect the value of the Fund's investments and could cause the Fund to defer or suspend redemptions of its shares.

Single country / specific region risk: investing in a single country or specific region may be riskier than investing in a number of different countries or regions. Investing in a larger number of countries or regions helps spread risk.

For further information on risks, please refer to the Risk Factors section in the Company prospectus.

Investment should be made on the basis of the Prospectus and Key Investor Information Document. If you are in any doubt as to the suitability of any of our funds for your investment needs, please seek independent financial advice.
