A pioneering approach

Global warming is one of the greatest challenges of the modern world. As a committed investor, we must act and support the transition to a low-carbon and climate-resilient world. Through the fund, we invest in European companies that are making fundamental changes for a sustainable future.

Within the European equity universe, we identify the companies that can play a major role in the climate transition. First, we exclude companies that produce more carbon-intensive fossil fuels. Then we analyse each stock from two angles, using a selective filter: companies that offer solutions for adapting or alleviating climate change; and companies that are adjusting their operating and production methods to adapt to a world with higher temperatures, while reducing their carbon emissions.

Benefits

Long-term capital growth

For investors who want to grow their long-term capital, while also investing for a more sustainable future. This is active, principled, and unconstrained investing – not pegged to the market.

Active commitment to the climate

We are committed to monitoring our investments in relation to the climate and being accountable for their impact. We are also an engaged shareholder and encourage companies to be transparent on ESG criteria. Our focus on market reform helps to ensure the right conditions for effective climate transition are created.

Connected expertise

Investors benefit from the experience of a dedicated manager and a climate-risk specialist. They are supported by 40 equity market experts and 19 sustainable investment professionals, who provide the results of their investment research.

Failure to act on climate-related risks represents a failure to act in the long-term interests of investors.

Key risks

For further information on the risks and risk profiles of our funds, please refer to the relevant KIID and Prospectus.

Investment risk

The value of an investment and any income from it can go down as well as up and can fluctuate in response to changes in currency and exchange rates. Investors may not get back the original amount invested.

Derivatives risk

The fund uses derivatives; these can be complex and highly volatile. Derivatives may not perform as expected, which means the fund may suffer significant losses.

Illiquid securities risk

Certain assets held in the fund could, by nature, be hard to value or to sell at a desired time or at a price considered to be fair (especially in large quantities), and as a result their prices could be very volatile.
