Fund aim

The objective of the Fund is to provide a combination of growth and income above those of the ICE BofA USD 3 Month Deposit Offered Rate Constant Maturity Total Return Index, the "Benchmark Index". The Fund is actively managed and aims to outperform the Benchmark Index by 3.5% per annum. The Fund aims to deliver this objective while decarbonising the portfolio over time, targeting a 50% reduction in weighted average carbon intensity by 2030, compared to a December 2019 baseline level. The Fund aims to generate positive returns in all market conditions. The Fund has a higher performance target than that of the L&G Absolute Return Bond Fund. The objective is before the deduction of any charges and measured over rolling three year periods. There can be no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective.

Performance for the I EUR (Hedged) Acc unit class in EUR, launched on 20 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.

    Sustainability

    SFDR categorisation: Article 8Article 8: These funds promote environmental and/or social characteristics

    Environmental characteristics

    The Fund promotes the following environmental characteristics related to climate change:

    • reduction of greenhouse gas emissions intensity;
    • avoiding investments in certain fossil fuels; and
    • support of better practices in energy consumption (or usage).

    The Fund also promotes the following other environmental characteristics:

    • support of biodiversity and responsible land use.
    Social characteristics

    The Fund promotes the following social characteristics relating to social norms and standards:

    • human rights, labour rights and anti-corruption as set out in the principles of the UN Global Compact; and
    • avoiding the financing of controversial weapons.

    No reference benchmark has been designated for the purpose of attaining the environmental or social characteristics promoted by the Fund.

    Whilst environmental and social characteristics are promoted through the application of the sustainability-related investment strategy, investors are reminded that these environmental and social characteristics are not sustainable investment objectives.

    The Fund seeks to implement LGIM’s Responsible Investment Framework which aims to provide a consistent and systematic approach to exclusions, refined criteria and thresholds for setting environmental and social characteristics with a defined terminology and approach to support the implementation of such characteristics across the financial products managed by LGIM.

    The Responsible Investment Framework sets out the various types of investment strategies that LGIM’s financial products can follow and the responsible investing methodologies that explain how such investment strategies are defined and implemented.

    The Fund follows the following sustainability-related investment strategy:

    Battery Value-Chain Theme
    Clean Water Theme
    Clean Energy Theme
    Hydrogen Economy Theme
    Healthcare Breakthrough Theme

    Carbon Emissions Intensity Target

    Carbon emissions intensity aims to measure the volume of carbon emissions of investee companies and/or countries in relation to the revenue they generate. It is intended as an indication of how exposed a portfolio is to high or low carbon intensity companies. The Fund manages its weighted average carbon emissions intensity in order to achieve a 50% reduction by 31 December 2030 compared to the Fund’s portfolio as at 31 December 2019.

    LGIM ESG Score
    LGIM's Future World Protection List

    The Future World Protection List (‘FWPL’) consists of companies that fail to meet minimum standards of globally accepted business practices on sustainability, or our minimum requirements on the carbon transition. There are three components to the list:

    • Companies that generate 20% or more of their revenues from involvement in mining and extraction of thermal coal, thermal-coal power generation and oil sands,
    • Companies that are in breach of one or more principles of the United Nation Global Compact for a continuous period of three years (36 months) or more (that are considered persistent violators), or
    • Companies involved in the manufacture and production of controversial weapons.

    The Fund excludes investments in companies on FWPL. The list is monitored on an on-going basis and updated semi-annually. In order to determine the companies included on the list, we use data from a number of external ESG data providers.

    Further information can be found at https://www.lgim.com/landg-assets/lgim/_document-library/capabilities/future-world-protection-list-public-methodology.pdf

    LGIM's Climate Impact Pledge

    The Fund excludes companies that fail to meet LGIM’s minimum requirements on climate change following engagement under Climate Impact Pledge (‘CIP’).

    • The CIP maps out a large number of companies worldwide, in climate-critical sectors against key indicators. Using quantitative and qualitative measures, such companies are assessed under a traffic light system drawing on independent data providers and our pioneering climate modelling.
    • Based on the results of engagement with these companies, LGIM uses escalating methods as necessary, which includes a period of engagement with companies and in the event that a company continues to make insufficient progress and fails to meet LGIM’s minimum standard expectation, may include sanction through voting and divestment.
    • The CIP is monitored on an on-going basis and updated annually. The ESG data that is used in connection with the CIP is sourced from third-party data providers.

    ESG Factor Evaluation

    LGIM considers ESG factors when making investment decisions on behalf of the Fund which include a number of environmental and social factors, for example relating to:

    • climate change
    • water and waste
    • supply chain
    • environmental policies and controls
    • labour rights, health and safety
    • bribery and corruption.

    The evaluation process starts with the identification of ESG factors using both top-down and bottom-up approaches. The top-down research analysis focuses on determining the resiliency of sectors on a macro level, while the bottom-up research process evaluates the ESG credentials of individual companies.

    LGIM has developed a proprietary research tool called Active ESG View which brings together granular quantitative and qualitative ESG inputs. Active ESG View primarily uses third-party data from multiple different vendors which includes hundreds of ESG metrics (including data on carbon emissions, water and waste, environmental policies and controls, labour, health and safety, bribery and corruption) spanning 64 specific sectors and/or sub-sectors from a number of ESG data providers.

    The quantitative inputs consist of two components:

    1. an ESG score calculated in Active ESG View which evaluates and scores issuers from an environmental, social and governance perspective, and
    2. a screening of investee companies in respect of their involvement in certain products and services, and certain controversies and violations of norms and standards. This screening, directly or indirectly, maps to some of the adverse sustainability indicators set out in Table 1 of Annex I of the Level 2 Measures.

    LGIM sets minimum thresholds for both of these components in Active ESG View. These are then supplemented by LGIM’s qualitative assessment of the sustainability risks and opportunities relating to the relevant issuer. This qualitative assessment is performed by the Global Research and Engagement Groups (“GREGs”) which bring together representatives from LGIM’s investment and investment stewardship teams across regions and asset classes. Where issuers fail to meet either of the components of the quantitative assessment, and the GREGs have reviewed and agreed with the assessment through qualitative analysis, the Fund’s aggregate exposure to such issuers shall be limited so that the Fund shall almost exclusively hold investments that meet the above requirements.

    The sustainability indicator that will be used in relation to the attainment of the environmental and social characteristics relating to this process will measure the aggregate exposure to issuers that are not aligned with LGIM’s requirements for ESG factor evaluation.

    Key risks

    The value of an investment and any income taken from it is not guaranteed and can go down as well as up, you may not get back the amount you originally invested.

    Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

    This fund holds bonds that are traded through agents, brokers or investment banks matching buyers and sellers. This makes the bonds less easy to buy and sell than investments traded on an exchange. In exceptional circumstances the fund may not be able to sell bonds and may defer withdrawals, or suspend dealing. The Directors can only delay paying out if it is in the interests of all investors and with the permission of the fund depositary.

    The fund invests directly or indirectly in bonds which are issued by companies or governments. If these companies or governments experience financial difficulty, they may be unable to pay back some or all of the interest, original investment or other payments that they owe. If this happens, the value of the fund may fall.

    Prices of the ABS/MBS may be volatile, and will generally fluctuate due to a variety of factors that are inherently difficult to predict. In addition, the terms of the ABS/MBS may restrict its sale in particular circumstances.

    The fund could lose money if any institution providing services such as acting as counterparty to derivatives or other instruments, becomes unwilling or unable to meet its obligations to the fund.

    Derivatives are highly sensitive to changes in the value of the asset on which they are based and can increase the size of losses and gains. The impact to the fund can be greater where derivatives are used in an extensive or complex way.

    The fund may have underlying investments that are valued in currencies that are different from sterling (British pounds). Exchange rate fluctuations will impact the value of your investment. Currency hedging techniques may be applied to reduce this impact but may not entirely eliminate it.

    We may take some or all of the ongoing charges from the fund's capital rather than the fund's income. This increases the amount of income, but it reduces the growth potential and may lead to a fall in the value of the fund.

    Investment returns on bonds are sensitive to trends in interest rate movements. Such changes will affect the value of your investment.

    Following the imposition of sanctions on Russian securities and assets being removed from indices the market has been effectively frozen for foreign investors and all equity positions have been marked to zero in line with LGIM’s fair value pricing policy. Regardless of being priced at zero LGIM funds may still own these securities and any value realised in the future will be for the sole benefit of the relevant fund. LGIM will seek to divest from such securities at such a time that market conditions allow consistent with our fiduciary duties and applicable sanctions.
