Investment objective and policy
The Fund aims to achieve capital growth over the long term (at least five years).
The Fund invests in shares of companies based in or where the majority of their activities take place in the European region. The Fund invests in shares of high-quality companies which are positioned to contribute to, and benefit from, sustainable development. Investment decisions around high quality companies are based on three key points: (i) Quality of management including integrity, attitude to environmental and social impacts, corporate management, long term performance and risk. (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 invest up to 10% in other funds. The Fund may use derivatives to reduce risk or to manage the Fund more efficiently.

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.
^ An initial charge of up to 4% may be levied in certain circumstances, including on regular savings plans and may be remitted as commission to an intermediary.
^^ The ongoing charge figure (OCF) is calculated on the same basis as for the Key Investor Information Document and represents the charges you will pay over a year for as long as you hold your investment and may vary from year to year.
