The fund has a simple philosophy of “Participate when you can and defend when you need to”. This translates to two objectives:
Our investments are centred around the sustainable long-term theme of pillars of a functioning economy. The focus is on investments that are key for a successful economy and beneficiaries of demographic changes.
Our underlying “pillars” theme is strongly aligned to sustainable positive impact investments. We have been active investors in real assets since 2006 and developed a process that integrates ESG and Impact factors.
Past performance is not a guide to future performance. Do remember that the value of an investment and the income generated from them can fall as well as rise and is not guaranteed, therefore, you may not get back the amount originally invested and potentially risk total loss of capital. A table with five years’ performance is available in the fund factsheets.
The Fund has holdings which are denominated in currencies other than sterling and may be affected by movements in exchange rates. Consequently the value of an investment may rise or fall in line with the exchange rates. The fund can invest in derivatives. Derivatives are used to protect against fluctuations in currencies, credit risk and interests rates or for investment purposes. There is a risk that losses could be made on derivative positions or that the counterparties could fail to complete on transactions. The Fund's expenses are charged to capital. This has the effect of increasing dividends while constraining capital appreciation. Part of the fund is invested in bonds. The government or company issuer of a bond might not be able to repay either the interest or the original loan amount and therefore default on the debt. This would affect the credit rating of the bond and, in turn, the value of the fund. Investment in bonds and other debt instruments (including related derivatives) is subject to interest rate risk. If long-term interest rates rise, the value of your shares is likely to fall.
