Unit Trust (NURS non-complex)

Legal & General Global Thematic Fund

Reasons to invest

  • Offers a diversified exposure to multiple long-term, global growth themes
  • Provides underlying exposure to 400-500 companies via investing in L&G thematic ETFs
  • Offers diversification benefits against traditional global equity investment universes

Thematic investment strategies have risen in popularity in recent years, thanks to their ability to capitalise on long-term shifts in technology, demographics, energy and resources.
We wanted to make it easier than ever to access these growth opportunities, by creating a single point of entry to a diversified, risk-balanced portfolio of companies involved in multiple long-term themes. By combining the investment universes of our existing individual thematic strategies with a quantitative allocation model, the Legal & General Global Thematic Fund can help investors looking to gain long-term growth, without having to pick and choose between themes.

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 invests in smaller companies. Investments in smaller companies tend to be riskier than investments in larger companies because they can: be harder to buy and sell; or go up and down in value more often and by larger amounts, especially in the short term. In times of market uncertainty or if an exceptional amount of withdrawals are requested it may become less easy for your fund to sell investments and the Manager may defer withdrawals, or suspend dealing. The Manager can only delay paying out if it is in the interests of all investors and with the permission of the fund trustee or depositary.

This fund invests in countries where investment markets are considered to be less developed. This means that investments are generally riskier than those in developed markets because they: may not be as well regulated; may be more difficult to buy and sell; may have less reliable arrangements for the safekeeping of investments; or may be more exposed to political and taxation uncertainties. The value of the fund can go up or down more often and by larger amounts than funds that invest in developed countries, especially in the short term.

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.

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.
