How is this fund different to others?

A global equity fund that delivers on sustainability factors and invests in companies that collectively align with the 2016 Paris Agreement. This means the fund aligns with the legally defined requirements of the Paris Agreement and the 1.5°C global warming trajectory; upweighting companies that are enabling the achievement of net zero emissions by 2050. Whilst there are a number of exclusions (for example controversial weapons, tobacco, gambling and thermal coal) the index criteria also delivers a robust integration of ESG values, based on the S&P Global Corporate Sustainability Assessment. The fund tracks the S&P Developed Ex-Korea Large Mid Cap Net Zero 2050 Paris-Aligned ESG Ex-Non-Pharma Animal Testing Index.

The risk indicator reflects how much the value of the Fund’s assets goes up and down (volatility). A higher risk generally means higher potential returns over time, but more ups and downs along the way. The lowest risk rating doesn’t mean “risk-free” and this risk indicator is not a guarantee of a Fund’s future performance.
