Fund aim

The objective of the Fund is to provide a combination of growth and income by tracking the performance of the Solactive L&G Enhanced ESG UK Index NTR (the “Index”).

Benchmark

Solactive L&G Enhanced ESG UK Index NTR

  • What does it invest in? Invests in shares of UK companies as represented by the Index, which is alternatively weighted to give greater weight to companies that score well against environmental, social and governance criteria. This means the Fund will invest more in companies that score well against these criteria, and less in companies that do not. In addition, the Index will target an annual reduction in its overall carbon emissions.
  • How does it invest? Passively managed, to replicate the performance of the Index. As part of the Future World* range, the fund incorporates our Climate Impact Pledge, a targeted engagement process, and may exclude companies if engagement proves unsuccessful.

These numbers give indicative Fund exposures to assets with “country of risk” sourced from Bloomberg as either Russia, Ukraine, or Belarus, or exposures to Russian Rouble currency. The figures are based on early price estimated data so may differ from the fully verified month end NAV exposure. Where the holding is “indirect” (for example held in a sub-fund), best efforts have been made to ensure that exposure to the sub-fund(s) is on a consistent basis. As at dates have been chosen to reflect exposure both before and after the significant recent falls in values of impacted assets.

Exposures are presented to two decimal places, exposures may be rounded to 0 if less than 0.05%.

These exposures do not give an indication of the relative exposures versus the benchmark. With regard to index-based strategies, LGIM has a duty to track the relevant index to ensure clients receive exposure as set out in the relevant investment objective. Following the imposition of sanctions and assets being removed from indices the market was 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 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.

    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.

    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 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.

    Where companies in the Index are excluded from the fund as a result of the Climate Impact Pledge, this may affect the ability of the manager to closely track the performance of the Index.
