Fund aim

The objective of the Fund is to provide long term return consisting of a combination of capital growth and income. The Fund aims to deliver this objective while maintaining a lower weighted average carbon intensity than the Benchmark Index.

The Fund is actively managed and seeks to achieve  this objective by investing at least 80% of its assets in a variety of Euro denominated fixed interest instruments such as corporate bonds, other fixed or floating-rate debt securities and short-term debt securities. These may include asset-backed securities, mortgage-backed securities (residential & commercial), convertible securities and contingent convertible debt securities.

Performance for the I EUR Acc unit class in EUR, launched on 28 February 2020. Source: Lipper. This fund has adopted a single swinging price, this means that on any given day the single dealing price will be set at either bid, offer or somewhere in between, based on whether there was a net inflow or outflow into or out of the Fund. The past performance depicted in this factsheet is based on that dealing price and therefore may appear more volatile than it would otherwise be if we were to show the notional bid or offer performance, this is as a result of the daily swing.
Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. Markets could develop very differently in the future. It can help you to assess how the fund has been managed in the past. The tables and charts above shows the fund's performance as the percentage loss or gain per year over the last 10 years.
