The aim of the Fund is to provide both income and the potential to grow the amount you invested. The Fund aims to do this by investing in shares of companies that meet the Management Company’s criteria for responsible and ethical practices. The Fund invests at least three-quarters of its assets in shares of companies in the United Kingdom or companies that have significant operations there that meet its ethical investment criteria. Investments are assessed by the fund manager by reference to ethical investment guidelines additional to those usually considered by the fund manager when making investment decisions. The Fund’s investment approach means it may hold a small number of investments compared with other funds.
