Sustainability

Sustainability disclosures

The Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) is an EU regulation that came into force on 10 March 2021, and imposes disclosure requirements for EU financial products. These requirements include disclosing sustainability-related information for funds that (i) promote (among other characteristics) environmental or social characteristics (Article 8 products), or (ii) have a sustainable investment objective (Article 9 products), both as defined under SFDR.

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

The Fund promotes a range of environmental and social characteristics as described below. These characteristics are met by:

Stock selection
Carbon intensity
Future World Protection List

The Future World Protection List captures companies failing to meet globally accepted business practices on sustainability, or our minimum requirements on the carbon transition. There are two environmental and/or social components to the list:

  • Companies that derive 30% or more of their revenues (as a % of their balance sheet) from coal mining or extraction are excluded from the Fund.
  • Companies that are in breach of at least one of the United Nation Global Compact principles for a continuous period of three years (36 months) or more are considered persistent violators and are excluded.
  • In addition, companies involved in controversial weapons are also excluded. These exclusions, however, did not form the rationale for the article 8 categorisation.
  • The Future World Protection List is monitored on an on-going basis and updated every 6 months. In order to determine the list of companies included on the Future World Protection List, we use data from a number of external ESG data providers.

Further information on the methodologies used to assess, measure and monitor the inclusion of companies on the Future World Protection List can be found at https://www.lgim.com/landg-assets/lgim/_document-library/capabilities/future-world-protection-list-public-methodology.pdf

Climate Impact Pledge

Companies are excluded from the Fund in accordance with our Climate Impact Pledge.

  • The Pledge 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.
  • The Climate Impact Pledge engagement strategy sets expectations of companies in the coal value chain. Where these companies do not meet minimum requirements with regards to our climate strategy and action, we will vote against them and may divest from the Fund.
  • The Climate Impact Pledge is monitored on an on-going basis and updated annually.

Further information on the methodologies used to assess, measure and monitor the exclusion of companies from the Fund in accordance with the Climate Impact Pledge can be found at www.lgim.com/climate-impact-pledge

ESG integration

Our ESG integration encompasses both top-down and bottom-up approaches to identify and assess ESG factors in the research analysis process. The top-down research analysis identifies long-term, thematic shifts and structural changes which help determine the resiliency of sectors and the companies within them. The bottom-up analysis uses a proprietary, company analysis tool called Active ESG View which provides information on the ESG credentials of companies.

  • Our Active ESG View tool forms an essential component of this overall active research process. The tool brings together granular quantitative and qualitative inputs in order to reflect a full picture of the ESG risks and opportunities embedded within each company.
  • Active ESG View combines ESG raw data with qualitative assessment capturing ESG insights from our company analysis and engagements.
  • The ESG analysis starts with 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.
  • Our Global Research and Engagement Groups (GREG), which is made up of Investment Stewardship and investment teams, have established a proprietary materiality matrix using such data which seeks to identify financially material topics for a given industry. The materiality matrix brings structure to our research and a framework to help systematically define and prioritise our engagement activity across the firm.
  • The GREGs review the ESG data within the Active ESG View tool for each sector in order to increase or decrease weightings for each environmental, social and/or governance factor within the tool with the aim to create an overall assessment.

Active ESG View is an integral feature of this fund and the outputs of Active ESG View must be taken into account for all investment decisions.

Active engagement is a vital pillar within our approach to ESG integration. In practice, the data alone may not tell the full story, which is why we believe that incorporating a qualitative element is essential in order to fully capture the ESG risks embedded within each company. Our qualitative inputs capture ESG insights leveraging on the extensive knowledge of our various research teams. Formulating a forward looking view on how a company is managing sector specific challenges is a crucial element of our research process.

A description of the extent to which the environmental and social characteristics are met will likely be made available as part of the annual report published in 2022 as required by SFDR. The Fund’s most recent annual report does not include any information pursuant to SFDR.

Pre-contractual disclosure

The Fund promotes a range of environmental and social characteristics. The Fund seeks to meet these characteristics by;

(i) investing in bonds and bond related instruments issued by companies which meet the Investment Manager’s core pillars of ESG integration (as further described below); and

(ii) excluding investments in bonds issued by companies in the L&G Future World Protection List which includes (i) coal miner companies where coal extraction forms the largest part of their revenues, and (ii) perennial violators of United Nations Global Compact. A summary of the L&G Future World Protection List Methodology is available at: https://www.lgim.com/landg-assets/lgim/_document-library/capabilities/future-world-protection-list-public-methodology.pdf. In addition, the Fund excludes issuers in accordance with the Manager’s climate impact pledge (the “Climate Impact Pledge”). The Pledge 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 the Investment Manager’s pioneering climate modelling. A summary of the Manager’s Climate Impact Pledge is available at: www.lgim.com/climate-impact-pledge.

Evaluating positive ESG factors is an integral part of the Fund’s investment process. The Investment Manager’s integrated framework for responsible investing across both public and private assets is primarily based on stewardship with impact and collaborative active research across asset classes. As part of the investment research process, material ESG factors are identified using both top-down and bottom-up approaches. The top-down research analysis performed by the Investment Manager’s sector experts, in conjunction with its investment stewardship teams; help determine the resiliency of sectors and the companies within them. ESG factors are also fully embedded into the bottom-up research process which involves evaluating the ESG credentials of companies that the Investment Manager considers for investment, alongside traditional financial metrics. The Investment Manager has developed a proprietary research tool called ESG Active View which brings together these granular quantitative and qualitative inputs by evaluating sector-specific ESG factors. The ESG Active View provides an overview of how companies manage potential, sector-specific ESG risks and opportunities, so that these can be considered alongside all other components of fundamental investment analysis.

In addition to the above, active engagement with the issuers is used as a tool to drive progress and influence positive change and is conducted independently and in collaboration with industry peers and broader stakeholders. Engagement activities normally focus on specific material ESG issues and involve formulating an engagement strategy with regard to such issues with the aim to track and review the progress of the issuers during this process. The Investment Manager also provides regular reporting on the outcomes of its engagement. This can be made available on request or can be found at: www.lgim.com . Together, these activities enable the Investment Manager to conduct engagement that drives positive change and to deliver integrated investment solutions.

The Investment Manager finally aims to ensure that (where applicable) the issuers in which the Fund is invested follow good governance practices by 1) setting its expectations with issuers' management with regard to good governance practices; 2) actively engaging with the issuers; and 3) supporting policymakers and legislators to ensure there is strong regulation and standards.

Governance practices

The ways in which we ensure that investee companies follow good governance practices are set out below.

Setting expectations

A number of policies and processes guide the engagement activities, set out the approach to investment stewardship, and outline the expectations of investee issuers. The Global Corporate Governance and Responsible Investment Principles set out the approach and expectations with respect to key topics that are essential for an efficient governance framework, and for building a sustainable business model. We expect all issuers on a global scale to closely align with our principles which set out the fundamentals of corporate governance. We also take into account market specificities and take a tailored approach to voting on some topics in various markets. Further related policies can be found on the Investment Stewardship section of the LGIM website.

Active engagement

Active engagement with the issuers is used as a tool to drive progress and influence positive change and is conducted independently and in collaboration with industry peers and broader stakeholders. Engagement activities normally focus on specific material ESG issues and involve formulating an engagement strategy with regard to such issues with the aim to track and review the progress of the issuers during this process.

Voting
Supporting policymakers and legislators

LGIM's Investment Stewardship team actively engages with policy makers and legislators to ensure there is strong regulation and standards in regards to governance practices.

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, rather than being traded on an exchange, are traded through agents, brokers or investment banks matching buyers and sellers. This makes the bonds less easy to buy and sell than investments that are traded on an exchange. Directors 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 trustee or 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.

Investment in contingent convertible debt securities may result in material losses to the portfolio based on certain trigger events. The existence of these trigger events creates a different type of risk from traditional bonds and may more likely result in a partial or total loss of value or alternatively they may be converted into shares of the issuing company which may also have suffered a loss in value.

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.
