Fund Objective

The Fund aims to grow your investment. The Fund invests in shares of companies in emerging markets or whose business is predominantly based in emerging markets. This includes companies that are listed on exchanges in developed markets. Emerging markets 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.
