Investment Objective

To deliver higher returns than market-weighted indices, after fees and transaction costs, at similar levels of risk.

Investment Policy

To hold a well-diversified portfolio of companies whose shares are traded principally on the major exchanges of developed markets. The fund may invest across the entire market capitalisation spectrum, but tends to have a larger emphasis on small and mid-cap companies than a market-weighted index. Stock positions in the fund are weighted to achieve better diversification than a market-weighted index on an individual stock, sector and country level.

The fund will generally be overweight in stocks considered to be value stocks and underweight in growth stocks. To determine fundamental value we use a valuation composite, which captures book values, earnings, operating cash flows and net cash distributions to shareholders. The Global Sustainable Focused Value Fund has a stronger value tilt than the Global Sustainable Value Fund and takes larger positions away from a market-weighted index.

In addition, we incorporate how companies manage their environmental, social and governance (ESG) responsibilities. The results of these factors inform our view when considering an investment for our portfolio.

Risk and Reward Profile

The Synthetic Risk & Reward Indicator (SRRI) of the Fund is 6 (out of 7). It illustrates the position of this Fund on a standard risk/reward category scale. This indicator is based on historical data and may not be a reliable indication of the future risk profile of the Fund. The risk and reward category shown is not guaranteed to remain unchanged and may shift over time. The lowest category does not mean investment is “risk free”. This indicator is not a measure of the risk that you may lose the amount you have invested.

The Fund is categorised as category 6 as it typically produces higher rewards than other funds (such as money market funds) and is higher risk as a result of investing in shares of companies in developed and emerging markets, the price of which may rise and fall. Risks materially relevant to the Fund which may not be adequately captured by the indicator:

Investment Risk: the Fund may not achieve its investment objective and the value of shares in the Fund may fall.

Currency Risk: the Fund invests in assets which are priced in overseas currencies other than the Fund’s base currency (U.S. Dollars). Changes in exchange rates may lead to fluctuations in the value of your investment. The Fund may use techniques (investment level hedging) to try to limit currency exchange risk, but there is no guarantee these will be successful.

Class Currency Risk: your shares are priced in Sterling whereas the Fund’s base currency is U.S. Dollars. The Fund does not use techniques (share class level hedging) to try to limit the class currency exchange risk and changes in exchange rates may lead to fluctuations in the value of your investment.

Derivative Risk: the value of a derivative depends primarily on the performance of the underlying asset. A small movement in the value of the underlying asset may cause a large movement in the value of the derivative which may result in a loss to the Fund. The Fund is exposed to the risk that the other party to the derivative will not meet its obligations.

Small and Medium Sized Company Risk: Smaller and medium sized companies tend to have younger and more limited product lines, markets and finance and a smaller management team. As a result they may be more difficult or impossible to sell which could adversely affect your investment.
Further details of risks associated with an investment in the Fund are set out in the Prospectus and the Supplement under the heading ‘Risk Warnings’.
