Fund objective
The sub-fund invests for long term total return primarily in a concentrated portfolio of equity and equity equivalent securities of companies that aim to be the market-leaders in their respective sectors at managing their businesses in the face of climate change to maintain or enhance their competitive advantage and which have their registered office in, and/or with an official listing on a major stock exchange or other Regulated Market of any country. The sub-fund will seek to invest in companies with registered office in, and/or with an official listing in, developed markets such as OECD countries, and also those in Emerging Markets. There are no capitalisation restrictions, and it is anticipated that the sub-fund will seek to invest across a range of market capitalisations. The sub-fund may also invest in financial derivative instruments such as futures, equity swaps, options and forward currency contracts and in other currency and equity derivatives. The sub-fund intends to use such financial derivative instruments for, inter alia, the purposes of managing market exposure (up to a maximum of 110% of the sub-fund's net asset value) and currency positioning but also to enhance return when the Investment Adviser believes the investment in financial derivative instruments will assist the sub-fund in achieving its investment objectives.
