The Sustainable Future Process

Equities

In a fast changing world, we believe the companies that will survive and thrive are those which improve people’s quality of life, be it through medical, technological or educational advances; driving improvements in the efficiency with which we use increasingly scarce resources; and helping to build a more stable, resilient and prosperous economy. The process seeks to invest in high-quality organisations with robust business fundamentals, strong management and attractive valuations; adaptors and innovators capitalising on change, accessing new markets and opportunities and outperforming their competitors; and companies that are creating real and lasting value for shareholders and society, now and in the future.


Fixed Income

We invest in a focused portfolio of corporate bonds that are attractively valued and take into consideration environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors by investing in companies that manage these exposures to minimise risk. As active managers, we believe in a high conviction approach to ensure we develop a thorough understanding of our holdings and the factors that influence their long-term value. There are two main stages to the process: seeking to identify superior bonds and construct resilient portfolios.

Risk warning

Past performance is not a guide to future performance. • Do remember that the value of an investment and the income from it can fall as well as rise and you may not get back the amount originally invested.  • The Fund has holdings which are denominated in currencies other than Sterling and may be affected by movements in exchange rates. Consequently the value of an investment may rise or fall in line with the exchange rates. • Fluctuations in interest rates are likely to affect the value of the bonds and other fixed-interest securities held by the Fund. The value of these securities will fall if the issuer is unable to repay their debt or has their credit rating reduced. Generally, the higher perceived credit risk of the issuer, the higher the rate of interest. Fluctuations in interest rates are likely to affect the value of the bonds and other fixed-interest securities held by the Fund. If long-term interest rates rise, the value of your shares is likely to fall. If long-term interest rates rise, the value of your shares is likely to fall. • The fund can invest in derivatives. Derivatives are used to protect against currencies, credit and interests rates move or for investment purposes. There is a risk that losses could be made on derivative positions or that the counterparties could fail to complete on transactions. • If you need to access your money quickly it is possible that, in difficult market conditions, it could be hard to sell holdings in corporate bond funds. This is because there is low trading activity in the markets for many of the bonds held by these funds. The Distribution Yield is higher than the Underlying Yield because the fund distributes coupon income and a portion of the fund’s expenses are charged to capital. This has the effect of increasing distributions and constraining the fund’s capital performance to an equivalent extent.
