Asset Management Market Study

In response to the Asset Management Market Study, we have (i) updated our fund investment objectives and policies so they are clearer and more useful for investors and (ii) explained why and how our funds use particular benchmarks or, if they do not use a benchmark, how investors should assess the performance of a fund.

Updated KIIDs and prospectuses are available for the UK authorised funds. The fact sheets with the new disclosures will be available from September 2019. For further information on the Asset Management Market Study, please download our frequently asked questions.

The way we manage the funds, and the risk profiles associated with our funds, has not changed. Full details of the clarifications we’ve made to our funds, please download our UK fund updates.
